World Oceans Day
Friday, June 5, 10 am – 3 pm
Don’t miss our 23rd World Oceans Day, which we celebrate annually on the first Friday of June. The museum is free all day, with exhibitors in and around the waterfront, with over 30 organizations and exhibits and displays! Our event annually attracts over a thousand visitors and many school groups.
Washroom Renovations and Access
To serve our visitors better, we are currently under construction in a part of the main foyer to expand our washroom facilities. Public washroom access is currently available on the second floor in two locations: male/female washrooms are located at the end of the Titanic exhibit and Shipwreck Treasures of Nova Scotia exhibit, and a single unisex washroom located to the left of the Days of Sail Gallery. We apologize for any inconvenience.
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.
