Our lobby houses a growing collection of model ships.
Our gift shop offers books, posters, DVDs, clothing, and more.

Free parking. Washrooms on site. Bottled water available.

Entry and exit is by a 7.5 m (25 ft.) ramp with a 13.5° slope. Upper Decks tours present all 3 stories of this century-old 105 m (350 ft) long ship, from the vantage point of both passengers and crew: there is a 13 step staircase between each floor. The Combined tour adds the Engine Room tour: access is via a 26 step staircase (with a landing at mid-point) to the hold.

Visitors are not permitted to bring pets onto the ship or the adjacent parking pad. Pets are permitted, on a leash, with an Adult attendant, on the remainder our grounds, while others in the same visitor group visit the ship. There are three park-like (grassed and treed) areas with picnic benches suitable for this purpose. We do not provide water, drinking bowls, or waste containers: please cleanup after your pet.

There is an all-volunteer crew of 150, some of whom are retired crew (or relatives) from the CPR fleet which sailed from the port.  There are some students and the rest are area residents with a love of history.  We are in the process of building a yacht club facility next door which includes a restaurant comprised of retired CPR dining coaches.
