Maritime Museum Of The Atlantic, Halifax Reviews
This is one of my favourite places in Halifax - I've been coming here off and on since around 1987. It's full of natural light, it's completely accessible, the washrooms are modern and clean and the staff are friendly and really approachable. I've taken kids and adults of all ages and mobility levels to this fantastic facility; I've gone on tours and I've walked through it on my own but today I experienced it in a completely different way. Today I went with my kiddo to the March Break interactive program where we stitched canvas, spliced ropes and did some old fashioned wood work. It is an old fashioned, old school, low tech place to unplug and learn.
This used to be one of the best places to go for info on the Titanic. For some reason over the years they decided it would be best to get rid of most of the exhibit. Now its a good place to bring your kids to learn how old communication work. And to learn about how our port has developed over the years. There are models of ships.
Great Titanic display and very cool to see the historical Canadian Halifax explosion. Good guides he was super chill and had a great beard. Also they have a chill parrot named Marlin and he will talk to u a bunch. Would recommend going
What a wonderful experience! Highly recommend stopping here for anyone in Halifax. The exhibits are interesting and well done. Staff is very friendly and helpful.
I took my son there for data on a project for the Halifax Explosion. The staff was amazingly helpful and we got lots of pictures! Would go back again just to check out all the cool model ships!
