Heritage, History & Dining

The Steamship Terminal building on Victoria’s Inner Harbour is a place steeped in Victoria’s maritime history. Renovations of the building are only a first step towards the vision of a renewed transportation hub and grand public space. 

This landmark building is once again open to the public. By day or by evening, time spent in the outdoor plaza on the Inner Harbour or under the lights in the main hall will connect you to the experiences of others who entered this graceful structure many decades ago.

The monumental heritage of the building is complimented by new businesses, including Starbucks coffee, making it their home.

The Bateman Foundation Gallery of Nature

The Bateman Foundation Gallery of Nature brings the art of renowned naturalist painter Robert Bateman to a gallery and interactive centre on the second floor. The Robert Bateman Gallery Shop on the street level offers a wide selection of original, finely crafted gift ware with a particular emphasis on the natural world.
