Facing Northwest - View from Visitor Information Center towards Maritime Museum of the Atlantic and Cable Wharf.
Located in the heart of Halifax’s historic 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. The Halifax Waterfront is both a picturesque destination – and Nova Scotia’s most visited location. Sparkling water, a thriving downtown business core, a working port and harbour traffic combine to make this a natural meeting point for locals and tourists. Waterfront Development aims to harness the potential of our unique waterfront resources by maximizing public access to the water’s edge and creating memorable spaces and experiences that enrich Nova Scotia’s cultural and economic opportunities year-round.
