Located in the heart of Halifax’s waterfront, there’s no better place to immerse yourself in Nova Scotia’s rich maritime heritage than the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.
From small craft boatbuilding to World War Convoys, the Days of Sail to the Age of Steam, the Titanic to the Halifax Explosion, you’ll discover the stories, events and people that have come to define Nova Scotia and its relationship with the sea.

MERLIN the MACAW’s 11th BIRTHDAY BASH!!!
Our fine feathered friend will be celebrating in style this Saturday with crafts, activities and cake and you're all invited!
Throughout the day, you can try our Seek-a-Macaw scavenger hunt with a draw for a prize pack. At 1:00, we'll be offering a variety of fun crafts and at 2:00, we'll have cake and juice in the foyer before everyone sings Happy Birthday to Merlin and he gets his presents.
If you can't attend in person, you can watch it live on his webcam.
Join Jon Tattrie for a lively presentation about one of the most controversial figures in Nova Scotian history.
After his talk, Jon hopes to engage the audience in an open discussion about the founder of Halifax and his legacy.
Copies of Jon's new book will be available for purchase at the event.
