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.
