Nautical Christmas Card Display

Runs until Saturday, January 31st

Nautical Christmas cards have circled the globe since the days of the clipper ships. On display are a wide variety of beautiful cards from cable ships such as Mackay-Bennett and Minia, which recovered the bodies of the victims of the RMS Titanic disaster as well as Lord Kelvin and Cyrus Field, which were mainstays on the Halifax waterfront for years.

Maritime Museum of the Atlantic

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

From small craft boatbuilding to World War Convoys, the Days of Sail to the Age of Steam, the Titanic to the Halifax Explosion, you’ll discover the stories, events and people that have come to define Nova Scotia and its relationship with the sea.
