Had a great tour guide give us the Titanic 'Heros and Zeros' talk. Very interesting! Having visited the Explosion Bell tower in the morning, the exhibit in the museum was very illuminating.

We really got an insight of the Halifax blast and Titanic connection to Halifax. We spent quite a bit time and presently they have dome theater on whaling. Enjoyed the staff and were very informative.

Very hard to tell which display I enjoyed the most - they are all good. I particularly recommend the Titanic, Shipwrecks, and Cunard displays. Amazing small boat collection. I cannot wait for the "Acadia" to be open to the public. Thoroughly recommended. Half a day...More

Enjoyed the displays and exhibitions. Also loved the show in the Sea Dome. Saw the documentary on the Blue Nose. Loved it.

We thought this museum would take longer than it did, there are plenty of exhibits but a lot of reading. We did thoroughly enjoy the displays about the Halifax explosion though.

It’s a great museum. Unfortunately the air conditioner was broken so we left early due to the heat and humidity.

Great exhibits with lots of variety. The titanic exhibit was very interesting, but the best part was Leslie the Tour Guide! Wish they offered longer/more in-depth guided tours as she brought a lot to the table.

I had free time in Halifax and the weather was cold and rainy so I checked out this warm and toasty Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. It is amazing! My favorite section was the history of the Titanic. Until I visited here, I did not...More
