The Maritime Museum of B.C.

Setting foot inside this museum elevator feels like going back in time: The historic lift, with its gold exterior and blue grillwork, is the oldest operating birdcage elevator in North America. Judging from the smooth ascent over three floors, it’s aging gracefully, but keep your eyes peeled: Rumour has it that the building, a former provincial law court and the site of many executions, has its share of spirited guests.
