Description: 

Enjoy a unique tour of the HMCS Haida, Canada's most famous warship and a national historic site located in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. The HMCS Haida is a Tribal Class destroyer built in England and was commissioned into the Royal Canadian Navy in 1943 and she served in many regions during the Second World War. After a post-war refit, Haida continued in service through Korean War and Cold War situations, until she was decommissioned in 1963.

On her last cruise in 1963, HAIDA came into the Great Lakes on a training mission. During this time a group of businessmen were inspired by her history and sought to obtain her as a memorial to the men and women of the Royal Canadian Navy. They were successful in their bid to purchase the ship and she arrived in Toronto the next summer and opened to the public on July 9, 1965.
