Located at the Halifax Seaport, the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier is a museum of stories. New interactive and immersive exhibits showcase the contributions of newcomers to Canada’s culture, economy and way of life. As a National Historic Site and last standing immigration shed in Canada where 1 000 000 people first arrived in this country between 1928-1971, we provide a unique and authentic cultural experience in both official languages.
Newly expanded, we celebrate Canadian immigration stories from past to present day. The only National Museum east of the Capital Region, we doubled our exhibit space in 2015 to include the broader story of Canadian immigration from first contact to the present day. The Museum’s current temporary exhibition, Canada’s Titanic- Empress of Ireland runs until November 2016. Canada’s Titanic – The Empress of Ireland is a dramatic exhibition that takes visitors to the heart of the one of the greatest maritime disasters in Canadian history. Artifacts from this once-splendid ocean liner, historical documents and witness accounts help bring to life stories of loss and rescue, despair and bravery.
