Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, Halifax (must see)
The museum, founded in 1948, was originally called the Maritime Museum of Canada. It was located on the HMC Dockyard naval base. It finally moved to its current home in 1981 when the city attempted to create a waterfront project that would increase tourism.
A number of permanent exhibits are on display at the Maritime Museum. Some of these include the sinking of the Titanic, the Halifax Explosion and Shipwreck Treasures of Nova Scotia. Rotating exhibits can also be seen throughout the year.
The museum and the accompanying Marine Heritage Store are open daily from 10 AM to 4 PM.
