In 1968 a replica of the Nonsuch was built in England to honour the 300th anniversary of the voyage. It was shipped to Montréal in 1970 and displayed on the Great Lakes and Pacific coast before being installed in a specially built museum in Winnipeg. The replica is considered to be the most accurate reconstruction of a 17th-century ship.
