To be able to see the real ship and climb to all the levels made you wonder. It reminds me that the peace we have is to be appreciated.

We have visited a couple of times. What a great way to step back in history and see a great protector of our country. A good friend of mine flew as an escort for the Hiada during WW11 and had their 40th wedding anniversary aboard the ship when it was moored in Toronto.

If you like the navy, ships or even water, you learn so much about what it is like to live on a ship for days, weeks etc. If you get the chance do it, it is well worth it.

The self-guided tour is informative. You are able to go all over the ship and get a strong impression of what life would have been like for the sailors.
