Port Arthur Historic Site Port Arthur
Both cruise and guided tour are well worth doing and when they are done, you can wander about the grounds, visiting the various buildings, some of which are museums and all of which contain informative panels.

My older brother who loves motorcycles was in heaven in this small but excellent museum and for those of us who aren’t big into bikes it was still quite interesting and full of shiny stuff.
