  • Only one small room with not a lot in it! Very disappointing! Spent about 10 minutes max inside :(
  • New location and they don't have all their items on display during this visit. Kind but small staff. Wish I had gone during its old location.
  • The oldest cage elevator in Canada! and you get to ride in it. Lots of boat and model displays. Great descriptions of what life was like in the harbor and city from the founding to the present day.
