Description

At the Maritime Museum of Atlantic, you can explore the hydro-graphic research vessel, CSS Acadia, which is berthed at this museum's wharf. At other times, content yourself with wandering through the William Robertson & Son Ship Chandlery. For those interested in the Titanic, you might be aware of the fact that the recovered bodies of the tragedy were brought to the city's morgue and then interred here in 1912. Watch a film depicting the tragedy that was the Halifax Explosion in 1917. Check out more than 40 small watercraft and thousands of artifacts. Souvenirs can be purchased in the Museum Shop. The Museum is also rented out for different events. Call ahead for more information.
