Wonderful to see the ship again since it moved from Ontario Place. A little harder to navigate since our last visit but still learned more about her and her crews. Watch your head and keep the little ones close.

This was my kids (10 & 12) first time on a WW2 ship. They loved it and so did I. There is a nice self-guided tour with good descriptions. Plenty of hatches, ladders, and stairs to climb up and down. Well worth the trip!

We visited on the 75th anniversary of HMCS Haida. Oh my god, so many surprises! Each of us got a complimentary souvenir cup. The ship was full of veterans, telling their stories. Don't miss the 100th anniversary! Or visit any day and enjoy it!

I visited with my dad and sister and all three of us had an awesome time. We were pleasantly surprised at how much of the ship you could tour, as there were very few "off limits" areas (only for your own safety). I would definitely...More

Nice change from the typical museums and the staff/crew are extremely helpful. They directed us to parts of the ship and explained in detail how things worked aboard.

I would say no because there are a few places where you have to climb or descend metal “ladders” the term used by the navy to describe steep stairs.

Yes, there is a small parking area close to the ship, and outside the fences. It gets pretty busy, though.

as the Haida is a Parks Canada site and a war memorial no dogs are allowed on board.
