Located in the heart of Halifax’s historic waterfront, there’s no better place to get immersed in Nova Scotia’s rich maritime heritage than the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.

We collect and interpret various elements of Nova Scotia’s marine history – from small craft and boatbuilding to World War convoys; the Days of Sail to the Age of Steam; Titanic to the Halifax Explosion. On the waterfront wharf you'll find CSS Acadia, Canada’s longest-serving hydrographic vessel, who is over 100 years old and lives at the museum’s wharf.

Visit Canada’s largest and oldest maritime museum and discover the stories, people and events that have shaped this province and its relationship with the sea.
