Maritime Museum Of The Atlantic - Review
The museum showcases Halifax’s rich maritime heritage. It is located on the historic waterfront and is the oldest and largest maritime museum in Canada. The collection of the museum is very extensive and truly explores every aspect of maritime history through the numerous artifacts, photographs and vessels. Popular exhibits include the Days of Sail, the Age of Steam, Small Craft, the Canadian Navy, the Halifax Explosion, and Shipwrecks. There is also a permanent exhibit that gives a detailed account of the sinking of the RMS Titanic with a focus on Nova Scotia’s role in recovering the bodies of the victims, many of whom are buried in cemeteries across the city. There is also a gift shop called the Marine Heritage Store.

Maritime Museum Of The Atlantic, Halifax Reviews
It’s great if you really like to know everything about ships, in any sizes or made in whole history of Atlantic Ocean. If you want to visit some part of Titanic or read many things about it or watch a short movie about it and some other movies about Halifax and it’s explosion in 1917 this is the right place. And I also recommend you to visit this museum in a sunny day, the view of the little lake next to it which is connected to the athletic ocean is great specially on top of the balcony. And don’t miss the street foods next to the museum in a narrow street. Have a great experience in little lovely Halifax.
Good exhibit. Titanic and Halifax explosion are detailed here. Entrance fee also included the 360 show. Can not comment on the 360 as I do not have enough time. Also exhibit on convoy to England during WWII. Learn Morse code while you are there. Assign 2 hours to see all.
Had an excellent experience here. The boats are all open to be looked in, which is really nice. The Halifax harbour explosion and Titanic exhibits are excellent! A lot of interesting artifacts and stories from both incidents. Extremely interesting and informative.
Great museum that chronicles the history of fishing in the Atlantic provinces from the arrival of indigenous peoples to modern times. There is a tidal zone touch tank full of creatures for kids to explore. Loads of artifacts from the bluenose, fishing villages and even a retired Grand Banks schooner floating on the dock (so cool)! The staff were friendly and welcoming and ready to answer any questions. There is also a great seafood restaurant on site.
The history on display at the Maritime Museum is amazing. The hand-made ship models are works of art. You can see the entire museum in 1 - 2 hours, leaving plenty of time to shop & sight-see. If you also watch the videos add 1 hour, they're worth the time.
