Arts & museums

Located in Halifax's waterfront region, this museum explores nautical life and culture. Learn about steam ships, the Titanic and the Halifax Explosion. You'll also have a chance to climb aboard WWI ship CSS Acadia and explore other exhibits about sailing and shipwrecks.

Travelling with kids? Stop by the museum's popular Theodore Tugboat exhibit and see all the models on display teaching children about how a harbour operates. Then, head over to Murphy's Cable Wharf to take a tour of the harbour in a full size Theodore Tugboat replica!
