Halifax is an ideal base from which to discover the delights of Nova Scotia, but organizing transportation and sightseeing independently takes time and effort. On this tour, spin through the Canadian countryside in comfort by air-conditioned vehicle with your guide. With admission fees plus pickup and drop-off at your downtown Halifax hotel included, hit top attractions including the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site of Canada and Peggy's Cove Lighthouse.

The MMA is a great place to wander around at any time. It has enough things that will interest people of all ages, whether kids or adults. They have everything from Theodore Tugboat to the Titanic. History of the RCN, lifeboats from Sable Island. Underwater diving on sunken ships. They also have the Acadia docked behind the museum. She was a hydrographic survey ship, in the RCN during both wars. Normally open to the public, this year the virus kept her closed, but you can still get a look at her. Go visit, you will enjoy it.

This museum isnt very big, but we very much enjoyed our visit. The Halifax Explosion exhibit was very well done & we learned so much about that fateful day. We also loved the Titanic exhibit, the artifacts from the ship were amazing & the set up of the exhibit was interesting & informative. We also enjoyed “Merlin” the parrot & the little mouse that visits him frequently. Well worth a visit when in Halifax

This museum is all about the nautical aspect of the maritimes. They have some unique things here and some interesting Titanic exhibits. The thing I was dissapointed in was the size. It only took us about an hour to see all of it. The thing that really peaked my interest was their resident parrot. I believe his name was Merlin. He can say hello, peakaboo, pretty bird and a few other words. A very pretty parrot. He has been there for quite a few years. He has his own web cam so you can see him whenever you feel like logging in. All in all it is worth a look especially since it is not expensive to get in.

Halifax is nothing if not the essence of a martime city. This museum is not too expensive, and offers a number of interesting exhibits, outlining the history of Halifax, and its relation to the sea. It's well worth an hour or two of your time.

Halifax is all about the ocean and this museum leads you through so much of Halifax's history with the sea. Very interesting, a wonderful 2-3 hours.
