Sub-teens and teens will be enthralled by the story behind Vancouver then, and Vancouver now. Peer through windows into a century-old home—a world without TVs and microwaves.

Stop At: Vancouver Maritime Museum, 1905 Ogden Ave, Vancouver, British Columbia V6J 1A3 Canada
This triangular glass structure was built around the historic St. Roch, the first ship to ever sail the Northwest Passage across the top of Canada from west to east. Aboard, there are bunks-"Gee, Mom, how did they fit in something that small?"- the Captain's quarters, and more to see. Kids love to take a turn at the wheel and imagine they're ploughing through arctic ice. P.S. Don't miss the wonderful model ships—the museum has its own resident ship-builder, the historic boats moored down at the water's edge, or the nearby totem pole.
