There are so few Canadian built WW2 Canadian Corvettes left. Imagine, Canada at the end of the war had the third largest navy in the world. Worth seeing

This ship is a must tour for anyone interested in Canada's naval history. The guides are friendly and very knowledgeable.

Canada produced these ships during WWII so quickly. They did heavy duty in the frigid North Atlantic. The men (I assume they were all male back then) must have endured great hardship in these little "Defenders of the North". Great visit!

Had an excellent guided tour by a student guide. I am already a trustee of the memorial. Some of the ladders are rather steep for those with mobility problems. Excellent historical review.

An old WWII Corvette war ship that we were able to wander through from top to engine. Everything is well labelled which made it easy to understand life on a working war ship. Very historic and well preserved.

2 hours will be plenty (if you have questions and want to talk to the staff) but otherwise if you just want to see living conditions etc 30 would be fine
