We invite everyone to come dressed as a pirate, if they dare, as we’re holding March Break for New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island March Breaks this year! Learn about life at sea as a pirate and discover the myth and reality of pirate history. Come aboard and join our crew for an adventure! We are still recruiting volunteers for our upcoming March Break program. We’d like to hear from you as soon as possible, so contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 902-424-6446.

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.
Join us throughout the winter for a wide variety of special events. From our series of Tuesday Night Talks to workshops with a focus on rope work to an exciting Art Boat Project, there is always something going on to keep you coming back.
