Classic Boat Festival:
Home Port Heroes Floating Exhibit
The Maritime Museum of BC welcomes Parks Canada to the 2018 Classic Boat Festival!
Parks Canada’s Home Port Heroes honours Canada’s Second World War Merchant Navy, unsung heroes who contributed to victory in 1945. Share in the amazing stories of the men and women from every province who built the ships of the Allied Merchant Navy, and of those who sailed them across perilous seas and through war zones. Test your nautical skills with hand-on activities for all ages, learn about the Canadian built Fort and Park cargo ships (including those built here in B.C.), and see historic objects and images from this significant event in our country’s history.
