HMCS Sackville, the last remaining Flower Class corvette in the world,...

HMCS Sackville, the last remaining Flower Class corvette in the world, symbolizes the extraordinary effort of Canadians seventy years ago during the Second World War. Restored to her wartime configuration she serves as a museum and memorial to those lost during the Battle of the Atlantic and to honour those who serve and continue to serve in the Naval Service of Canada. HMCS Sackville is berthed at Sackville Landing adjacent to the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in the summer and in HMC Dockyard during the winter.

Don miss your opportunity to set aboard the HMSC Sackville while you are in Halifax. The displays on the ship do a great job portraying life at sea during the war. Especially the sleeping areas, shops and galley. Guides onboard are very knowledgeable.

Kids enjoyed checking out the nooks and crannies of this frigate, the adults liked getting answers from both the recordings and the staff aboard the ship. Easy enough to get around and interesting introduction to navy life.

I'm not versed in military vessels but this exhibit was well-displayed and the staff were most informative. Reasonably priced as well. Worth a stop.

Along with friend, my wife and I had a short tour aboard the HMCS Sackville while in Halifax. This ship is the last of Canada's corvettes. The largely self-guided tour was enjoyable. Very interesting to see the facilities and to imagine the living conditions for those serving on the vessel. The fee is modest ($5 each; $2 for those 60+... More

We took the tour on the boat one morning. We looked around the boat. They had signs posted to explain what the area was. Touring this boat was very informative and interesting. Would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Halifax.

On our trip out East we visited many boats. Many of the tours were very informative and told the story of a unique boat; unfortunately this was not the case. This is just another boat.

Interesting look into the life of seamen running convoy duty during the war. You really get a sense of how crowded it would have been and the sense of constant alert they must have felt. Well worth the $5 admission.
