In her day, she sailed between Tobermory & Manitoulin Island, carrying cargo & people. Had a sister ship, I believe was the Norisle. Hard to believe a ship of this size plied the waters of Georgian Bay. Now replaced with the MV. Chee Chee Man.

I'm a fan of history but this place just grossed me out. Found it dirty and smelly. My child found being on a ship fascinating but I couldn't wait to get out. Make sure you have an update tetnus injection!

My wife and I toured the museum ship Norgoma while on a recent visit to Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. The self-guided tour took us approximately 45 minutes, and for $6 Canadian it was an even better bargain when considering the exchange rate from the U.S....More

If the city would do decent upgrades, this attraction would be worth it. While there is some history, many rooms are empty or outdated. Better money spent across the border on their ship.

There was a lot of really interesting and educational information and memorabilia inside the Norgoma.

For a ship that was retired from service in 1974 and made into a museum in 1980 the condition of it is deplorable. Some areas were filthy and smelled. It is supposedly under restoration to bring it back to how it looked "back in the...More
