It was very worthwhile and educational. It involved visiting key areas of the ship where real navy personnel lived, worked and socialized. The Voice and Video in below deck spaces allowed for a moment to sit down in these actual spaces and imagine the lived experiences of the sailors patrolling the seas during WW2.
Great piece of history. It's only there seasonally from spring to fall. But worth having a look if you are in the area. Tours of the ship are very fun.
A well cared for and impressive piece of history. Well worth a stop in.
Great history but most info buttons to not work (English and French)
Unfortunately, HMCS Sackville is now closed for the season as we have entered our winter work period in HMC Dockyard in Halifax. Looking forward to seeing EVERYONE next summer!!!! Pat Devenish CPO1 (Ret'd) Chief Engine Room Artificer &Tour Guide/Interpretor HMCS Sackville
This is a very nice piece of history and once again when you see how they lived on board this vessel it's impressive. They have mannequins set up to show some of the conditions. This will help kids understand more about grandparents and great grandparents and what they endured. Check it out..
Saw this small, but historic vessel, from the harbour, the last surviving Flower Class Corvette from WW2. Battle of the Atlantic.
A great piece of history. You can get into, on and around the ship to see much of what it was like to serve on a corvette at sea during World War 2. We visited her in October of 2017 and had a great time. When we came back in June 2018, she was away being refitted. The website says she will be back at her berth in late summer 2018. Worth a visit, especially after she is back in tip top shape.
Haven't visited: website says it's closed to visitors until 2019 or thereabouts for retrofitting. Guess I'll be coming back.
