    2 reviews

    Upper Clements is well worth coming to visit. We spent most of our time in the sister Adventure Park which is obstacle courses and zip lines. For $30 each we spent 3-4 hours doing a guided obstacle course which was so much fun. At the end of each course there was a short zip line. To finish off there were ...

    Maritime Museum of the Atlantic

    1675 Lower Water Street, Halifax, NS B3J Canada
    4.5
    5 reviews

    One of my favourite museums as a child growing up in Halifax. This museum explores Nova Scotia's naval and nautical past with lots of neat displays, videos and photographs. Particularly interesting if you're a bit of a history geek as they explore Halifax's unique ties with the Titanic tragedy.

    Canada's immigration museum. I visited in 1999, and according to wikipedia that was the year the museum opened. Two years earlier I had been to Ellis Island, and there are similarities but Pier 21 is still worth the visit.

The tour guides dress up in old-fashioned garb and do a bit of fun role-play to make the experience a bit more "authentic", and you'll learn a ton of about the history of Halifax ...
