Halifax is located in the Province of Nova Scotia, eastern Canada, and is a city that lives at its own pace, which is not the same as the rest of the country. This city was founded in 1749, from where the first aid was sent to the victims of the Titanic in 1912, and on December 6, 1917, it was destroyed by the explosion of a French ship. Today, Halifax is identified by these historical events and because 5 of the most important universities in the country are located in its territory.

Halifax is home to the financial district, the provincial parliament, museums, cemeteries, and a host of historical sites. But without a doubt the most beautiful place is the Waterfront, this begins from the ferry station and ends in the Farmer Market, in the tour, you will find the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, several sculptures, restaurants with terraces ideal for the summer, the view towards Dartmouth and the ocean.

In the heart of Halifax, you will find museums, cemeteries, temples, gardens… modern and historical buildings, which still show that this was a city full of corsair adventures.

  • Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. The most important museum in Halifax, it shows the shipping history of the province of Nova Scotia, with many articles, boats, documents, and photos. The most popular section of this museum is the one dedicated to the Titanic, where several objects rescued from the famous ship are exhibited. There is even the largest part rescued from the famous and beautiful staircase. It is very entertaining for children because it has activities suitable for them. It is in the center of the city on the Waterfront.
  • Pier 21. Pier 21 was the entry point for over a million immigrants and today is a very modern museum. I should point out that when I told my daughter that we would be going to Pier 21 Museum she was not very enthusiastic, because that “a museum about immigrants” did not mean much to her; but once we arrived and she started exploring it turned out to be her favorite in Halifax and one of the ones she liked the most on this trip. Pier 21 explains migration, its history, and the real cases of various people in such a simple and entertaining way that it is easy to get hooked on this place. It is very good and entertaining.
  • Citadel. Halifax’s most popular attraction is located on a hill in the city center. It is a star-shaped fortress from which you can see much of the city. It was built between 1828 and 1856 and can be visited inside, there are even several activities in the spring and summer. Its halls are interesting and there you will find people dressed in traditional clothes that explain every detail of the place. In front of the Citadel is an icon of the city. Old Town Click; which was a gift from Edward, Duke of Kent in 1803.
  • Natural History Museum. It is a small and entertaining museum to go with children and/or teenagers. Some activities are done and visitors can participate in some experiments. It is very close to the Citadel.
  • Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. I didn’t know Halifax had this nice art gallery, which is composed of two buildings connected by a tunnel under the street. It has a good collection of pieces by Canadian artists.
  • Waterfront. Although during the winter it is a very quiet place, in spring and summer it comes to life again to become one of the most important attractions of Nova Scotia. It is full of boutiques, restaurants, cafes, and recreational areas. Some festivals take place there, so it is the meeting point for many people.
  • Farmer’s Market. A market to spend all morning shopping, watching, listening to music, and eating. With over 140 vendors, this is a great farmers’ market. There you can find your breakfast or lunch of the day, take-home treats and there are always musicians, so you can take your place and enjoy the atmosphere. On the top floor, there is a terrace from which you can see the lighthouse in front of you and part of the Waterfront.
