We came across the maritime building by accident- we were admiring the outside of the building when a really friendly canadian lady who worked there showed us we could go inside to see it- its beautiful, very ornate, and the lifts are beautiful inlaid wood. We went up to the 2nd floor and you get a great view of the frescos close up. The twirling revolving door to get inside is fun too!

This building is an amazing work of architecture in the middle of a sea of tall glass skyscrapers. The detail in and out of this building is incredible and likes of which you no longer see. Take the time to see the front doors, the entrance hall, elevators and walk up to the second floor. Also, walk around the building and notice the intricate design tiles. There are many beautiful contemporary buildings in this area to admire as well, but this is much more detailed.

I give it 4 stars because it is really cool to see the detailed architecture of marine type life between the animals and the ships but wouldn't spend to much time there. Maybe 15 minutes or so. It is a one of a kind building though for Vancouver I'd say.

This is a beautiful ART DECO building that you have to see it to believe the beauty if this building. Please step inside to observe the grandeur of the lobby and try to glimpse inside the elevator. The architectural details of this building surpass all words. PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO SEE THIS LOVELY BUILDING. Unfortunately, you have to be an occupant to go up the elevators to the upper floors,but the lobby is truly a work of art!
