Warm up in Garrison Hall with hot chocolate, roast bannock over an open fire and watch a black-powder musket firing demonstration. Enjoy guided tours of the original establishment’s Officers’ Quarters. Explore the H.M.S. Tecumseth Centre and check out the real Tecumseth shipwreck and other museum displays.
