Despite finding out that the corvette Sackville was not on display and also discovering I was too early in the year by two weeks to visit the Acadia, both vessels usually at the adjacent quayside, I found the exhibits really well done. All items well presented with descriptive text in both English and French.
I did not know, prior to arrival at the museum, of the vessel Acadia and it's long term service as a Hydrographic ship. This was a surprise, and a nice one for me, as a Hydrographer!
There were plenty of exhibits of various nautical flavour, to keep all members of a family intrigued, from historical sailing vessels, naval development, the hydrographic service and a special and dramatic exhibit about the Halifax explosion.
A well laid out set of displays not hard on the feet to get around. A superb model making exhibit on the second floor.
Thoroughly enjoyable, although I may be slightly biased!
