  • I don’t think this museum could disappoint anybody. Amazing Titanic artifacts, and a fun collection of boats outside to explore. You can use an annual Nova Scotia museum pass here as well, which is a great value for anyone visiting multiple sites. Presentations, talks, and exhibitions are common here. The quality of the content is A+. However, some modernization of common spaces such as reception would improve the experience. Time for the province to invest some $$$ for a refresh.
  • 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.
