    This is a must see when in Halifax. It's history, and the sweeping views of the city below. Highly recommended.

    Great way to spend an hour or two! $10 for two adults and one child under 6. Scavenger hunt for the kids was fun, and kept the little one engaged in the exhibits, lots to see and some fun interactive exhibits. Details about the Halifax explosion, the Titanic and all of the centuries of detail about the Halifax Harbour.

    Staff were super helpful, showing us secret spots and got to find all of the scavenger items when we got stuck.

    5 year old of the group rated it a 10/5.

    Went with a close friend to trace check out the museum's offerings and to trace our history, as we both had ancestors who had gone through Pier 21. Poignant, informative, and engaging, we had an impeccable learning experience and got to connect a bit to our individual histories using the on-sight archival services. Whether or not you have a personal connection the Pier 21, this is well worth a visit while you're in Halifax!
