“Bluenose under construction”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

The attraction here is the story and romance and pride of Canadians revolving around this beautiful tall ship. The ship itself can be seen a short walk beyond the boardwalk in the harbour. It is under a permanent tent while it is being renovated. Surrounded by metal fencing but still viewable. A small museum is across the parking lot where you can watch a film and buy Bluenose T shirts.

We saw it, but couldn't get upclose because of the work being done on it.It was behind a locked chain link fence.

“Worth the Historical Visit!”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

Great experience...glad we stopped to see this ship,,it's enormous! You have to wear hard hats to visit the construction zone...pretty cool & fun. The ship is set to be completed and launched this summer 2012. Great way to get a glimpse of history...especially the ship that is on the back of the dime.
