The Maritime Heritage Centre was the venue for advance polls to the upcoming federal election, so this was our first time to glimpse a a part of the museum. From the brief time we had there it looked amazing. We shall endeavour to attend at a future date and really take all in that this is attraction has to offer.

An excellent guide talked us through the reconstruction of the huge tug boat that sits in the middle of the museum. The displays are minimal, but they focus on the specific maritime heritage of the area.

Here I was expecting another small town museum. Well, what a pleasant surprise this turned out to be! The centrepiece HAS to be the rebuilt fishing boat that once graced the Canadian five dollar bill. Our guide had personal knowledge this boat, which lent an air of credibility to its history and renovation that story boards just can't match. Also fascinating was the discussion of gill-nets, and why there are different sizes and colours. Our guide also had background knowledge on the Easthope engine - this clearly someone who has spent much of his life on the waters in the area. Enjoyed the story about the cruise ship running aground due to the fast tides in the area. I could go on, but should save something for when you visit. Well worth the $5 charge, lots of free parking.

We had a really well delivered guided tour by Bill (tour guide). The rebuilt fishing boat - what a great job of rebuilding (repairing) that tired old lady. The museum had lots of local maritime history + some really great ship models.
