The museum is small and free. What I enjoyed was the personal info, details and artifacts of different sailors. They did a great job of displaying them. Otherwise I think this information would have been lost. They also had info about the Canadian navy and...More

This is very tiny with limited displays. Very disappointing that the information plaque about "Human Cost of War" mentions military casualties and civilian casualties, but clearly doesn't include any mention of the Holocaust. Very insensitive.
