If you are into wars and history, this place is perfect for you! Its cool place I am glad by family stopped while in Canada! There is a ton of information around the ship, the staff was very friendly, and being able to independently walk around this ship was a really cool experience. They have some portions which are staged as they would be back which are closed off which was very cool. When I was there, they had some pictures kids could color and crayons on some tables. That kept the kids busy while the adults took a closer look.
What a cool piece of history to visit! There's lots to learn here about this unique Destroyer. Most importantly, it's the only one left. Kids and I had a lot of fun exploring and learning, while doing some activities that the parks staff gave us. Keep in mind there are lots of narrow passageways, ladders, and raised entrances. Parked at pier 7 and walked about 8 min. Entrance fee was $3.90 for an adult and free for the kids. Fun, informative, and an inexpensive way to spend a couple hours :)
