Hmcs Haida National Historic Site, Hamilton Reviews
A chance to see how much ww2 was part of the the Canadian history. I truly wish she were in better condition. A fantastic experience for able bodied people. Very little wheel chair access for obvious reasons. Be prepared to spend an entire day here. It does get hot in the ship and plenty of climbing and squeezing through. Well worth the trip.
A destroyer that was used WW II and Korean War by Canadian Navy, converted to a Museum. You will have a great experience visiting the ship. It's a national historic site maintained by Parks Canada, located in Hamilton. If you visit Hamilton, this could be a nice addition to your "places to visit". Great Lake view. Nice friendly volunteers to show you and answer all your questions.
Super awesome boat to tour! It really takes you back. On the weekend it is common to find veterans there that either worked on her or a ship similar. I met a woman down in the boiler room that worked on a similar ship and she was a absolute sweetheart that had incredible library of knowledge about steam powered ships.
We've been here 3 times so far - twice on our own and once with a school tour. Very reasonable pricing and tons to see and do! The last Canadian destroyer left, lots of war history to learn about and how the ship and crew operated. It's very tight in spaces, lots of up and down ladders, high walkways and roped sides, but we've done it with a keen eye on small kids, while pregnant and with a baby in a carrier.
This place is awesome. You het to have the skating shoes for $4 each pair and there is not entrance fee...so you can enjoy with family and friends..also, don't forget wear warm clothes and coats etc because there is so cold so enjoy......
