It's one of the few Canadian National museums outside of Ottawa and definitely worth the trip.
Canadian immigration, and the contents of the museum, are much more contemporary than most museums of this sort, because the focus is on the post WWII.

Living on an island, we miss the opportunity to visit really great museums, so they are always at the top of our must-do lists when we travel.
Spent a full day there, taking a guided tour, walking the walls, visiting the museums and the First World War trench reconstruction, which was very informative.

My husband and I love the sea, so any chance we get to visit museums with maritime items, we take advantage of the opportunity!
If you are a history buff you must visit this museum it is around 15.00 per person and only 100.00 a year for a membership for a family of 4 to get into this museum as well as 28 other museums in the province for...

It's also really close to other museums such as the Maritime Museum and the Discovery Centre.
The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia is a great gem of an art museum focusing on the artists of Nova Scotia and the Maritimes.

You can do everything from watching shows by scientists to getting inside a giant bubble(which is the best part of the museum btw!)
Its a nice science museum for kids, but the Innovation Lab was excellent.

The museum may be on the small size for people used to US Natural History museums, but it has some very good exhibits and is great for a family that wants a short visit before the kids are overwhelmed.
An excellent museum with well organized and curated exhibits - well worth visiting to get an understanding of the archeology, geology and natural history of the province.

... of the place was that the kids could touch and use the things there; this made it much more real for them and they learned much more than they would have just seeing these items in a standard museum setting.

Excellent way to have the Museum shade light and connect us to the realities of people lives in Halifax!
Take time to read through the museum displays, listen to audios & walk the park grounds.

Fully half the museum is devoted to Sidney Crosby, which seems a bit like overkill, but if you're interested in the subject, it's definitely a worthwhile stop.

We understand that, during the summer, there are Federal grants available to museums to enable them to employ students - there were several on the day of our visit and their politeness and helpfulness was outstand...
The museum located by the Shearwater Airforce Base contains a variety of planes and helicopters from World War II to the 1960s brought to life by Jim, an ex-serviceman, and now excellent volunteer guide.

This museum is simple and unpretentious and perfectly representative of Acadian culture and history--a must see.

The former Maritime Command Museum is now known as the Naval Museum of Halifax.
For all those that love military history, especially Canadian military history, it is chock full of stuff that you don't see in the Canadian War Museum.
