  • First visit to this beautiful city, walking along the waterfront and seeing this unforgettable museum. The museum tells the story of the first time to Canada to today. Unforgettable artifacts from the sunken Titanic to models of modern ships and any type of water vessel that we can imagine. A truly must visit and will be going back again because it was such an amazing experience.
  • Very interesting museum for anyone with an interest in boats. Great permanent Titanic exhibit. Very interesting exhibit about the Halifax harbor explosion. Be sure to check out the preserved supply shop. Lots of cool artifacts and smells absolutely incredible, like pipe tobacco and old timber
