Learn about the boat cradle restoration project during Doors Open, this weekend on June 3rd and 4th from 11:00am to 3:00pm. Have a rare chance to go behind-the-scenes and talk with the team that helped make this project happen. Come have a closer look at archival images and original pieces of this shipyard.

Children will also have an opportunity to explore the shipyard with a scavenger hunt designed for 6-12 year olds. Just ask a friendly heritage interpreter to participate.
