We are happy to welcome you back to the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. We have been working to create a safe experience for you and our staff. Check out our “Know before you go” guide to help prepare you for your visit.
We miss field trips too. Let us help teach some of our important provincial stories through our curriculum-based virtual programs brought into your classroom online.
Theodore Tugboat and the Big Harbour
Learn about our working Halifax Harbour through the eyes of a barge, ferry, cargo ship and tugboats with the help of a special friend named Theodore! Our gallery features the original models from the popular children’s show “Theodore Tugboat.” Theodore and his friends, including our CSS Acadia model, are here to delight and educate you in their miniature version of Halifax’s waterfront!
