We arrived in Halifax for a conference. We thought while we were here we would check out the Citadel. Its currently under re-construction of the exterior, but was an interesting site to see if you are interested in early Canadian history. Evidently, the site was never attacked by the French which rendered it a prime example of over preparation. Worth checking out if you have an hour or so to kill while in Halifax.

First things first, it is worth being at the citadel at midday so you can see a cannon being fired but do not forget the earplugs. The displays outlining the history of the citadel are outstanding including good use of audio and visual technology. The Canadian Armed Forces museum is also extremely good with many interesting exhibits including a signed photo of Hitler that was taken in France. There are guided tours to take and displays of skills used by soldiers throughout history. A must do when in Halifax. Great views of the city.

We spent an afternoon, June 4th, taking in the sites, learning and being entertained. Nice sunny day.
We went June 6th, expecting D-Day events but due to rain, those were moved. We toured the brand new exhibit - Juno Beach, Normandy, France replica. Interactive, well-informed guides and historically accurate - must see.

We visited early in the morning before the operating hours and walked the grounds which are beautiful. We got great views of the city and enjoyed the walk.
