During the season of giving, togetherness, and of being mindful of what we have, the Maritime Museum invites you and yours to take part in our annual Christmas at Sea events and charitable activities. This year, start a new tradition with us throughout the holidays and into the New Year!
Excavation: A Site of Memory
Excavation is a multi-media installation-based exhibit where artist Sylvia D. Hamilton mines her personal history and that of her direct ancestors, The Black Refugees of the War of 1812. Hamilton’s installation incorporates text, images (both still and moving), sound and found objects, and uses a personal and collective lens to frame her interrogation of the complex, linked concepts of memory, place and history in the African Nova Scotian community.
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.
