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.

‘Arts of the Sailor’ – Lanyard

April 11, 2015

Lanyards have been used on board ship for a variety of purposes, from carrying bosun’s whistles to keeping rigger’s knives properly stowed. This month, join heritage interpreter Jason Climie in making your own lanyard.


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.
