Lovely church that is an integral piece of Halifax history. We received an impromptu tour by one of the curators which helped us understand the significance of the church. Well preserved church artifacts on display. Easy walk from the cruise ships.

A modest little church with some historical displays. Don't make a special trip, but stick your head in if your in the area.

History, religion, and architecture wrapped in a pleasant package. Wander old Halifax and the waterfront and eventu@lly you will come by the church. Take a look inside and most definitely view the exterior.
