While staying at Doran Bay Resort, make sure you set aside 2-3 hours to visit our Model Ship Museum. This private museum displays one of the largest private collections of model ships in the world.
At any one time, approximately 75 model ships of varying in size/scale from 1 to 2 meters in length will be on display. This world class collection of model ships will trace the history of sail through the ages. In keeping with the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812, the museum offers a collection of both British and US vessels, including the HMS St Lawrence, a 120 gun first rate ship built in Kingston in 1813 which was larger than the famous HMS Victory.
There is also a most interesting collection of vessels tracing the maritime history of the Great Lakes. Come see large transatlantic steamers like the Titanic or ill-fatedEmpress of Ireland; Bluenose, Hudson’s Bay Company – Nonsuch, famous Bounty... all built from the original plans and to exacting detail.
