Went to see the Haida with my visiting family. This is an impressive ship and I learned some things that day on the haida!

So interesting to see the original ship and find out the history. There is always someone to assist in questions and very helpful during the tour. It was more than I expected and happy I decided to do it. It would be fine for all ages.

Went here with some friends for something to do. The ship is impressive. You can go on the ship and see how the sailors lived and worked during the war. It was amazing to see where they ate and slept. It has been meticulously cleaned and maintained. This turned out to be a really fun spontaneous outing.

I have been here multiple times and each time I learn something new! Great for kids and adults! Although, I will warn touring this ship does include going up and down steep ladders and high narrow walkways! I would defiantly recommend this for a birthday party or school group.

Inexpensive, informative and you can see and explore the whole ship. We spent more time here than we thought we would. Amazing piece of history and very neat to see how the sailors would have lived/worked aboard the ship. Also highly recommend walking over to the Army Museum afterwards. In the Army Reserve building, follow the signs from the ship... More

It was interesting to walk the ship. I looked through the photo album of all the men who had worked the ship and found it to be interesting. It was a great experience. The cost was only $5 and it was worth it.

I took my 2.5 yr old thinking he would love to be on a boat. I was worried he was too young but he was fine with the ladders and such. The parks staff were great too. They all were great with my son and had fun challenges for him that were right for his age. A definite must for... More

I visited for free during Doors Open Hamilton. Unfortunately, I was a bit late because of work and arrived near closing time, so I didn't have as much time as I wanted to look around. But I did have a quick self-guided tour and learned a bit about the ship's history, as well as the history of naval action in... More

We all had a great day exploring the Historic HMCS Haida, I went with my 2 kids and another family, Keep in mind, we are talking about very cramped quarters here, If you are heavy, have bad balance or are uncomfortable going up and down ladders you will not get to explore the ship in its for entirety. I would... More
