We took a cruise on the Wenonah II Steamship so admission was complimentary. It is quite a modest-sized discovery centre but a nice haven for families. Displays are literally set up on two floors in one large room. Would recommend stopping if as it's complimentary.

When we decided to visit this place on this grumpy and rainy day, we totally didn't expect to see the Miss Canada IV, a gorgeous beauty built in 1948 which has a unique 3000 HP engine and can reach 200 mph! Awesome place!

We spent a good hour here enjoying the exhibits and films. Wonderful that the local history is being honoured. The collection of wooden boats in the outside (covered) section is worth the price of admission.
