This is a self guided tour around the warship. This was the first time I'd been on a WW2-era battleship, most of the ones I've been around were far more modern. It was great being able to go everywhere on the ship (the engine room...More

Great Canadian history. Accesisable. They also have a small museum and store for souvenirs. The price is reasonable and close to pier 4 in Hamilton,where a number of other tourist activities are available. Good location for photos.

Going up and inside the HMCS Haida, which was active during World II and the Korean War, provides a good insight into Canada's naval history and its contribution to end conflicts. Since it's anchored by the waterfront it provides a more realistic view to what...More

It's amazing to walk around the HMCS Haida to see and feel the way sailors would have lived in those times. The ship was very clean, the quarters were small and cramped and the living conditions were relatively primative compared to our naval ships today....More

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.

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.
