Was more interesting in the past

If you are a History buff then you should go to see these but not that interesting now at least for us.

My niece presented me with a piece of the Berlin Wall retrieved during a visit to Germany. Years later a local enthusiast from Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada imported several sections and erected them on a vacant lot for the benefit of history for locals and visitors. They are a gentle reminder of what can go wrong in a society.

You do need to make an effort to find this attraction, and then you need to make an effort to appreciate it. I am astonished to find this in Truro, which seems so safe and innocent that, when you are there, it is difficult to imagine the horrors these hunks of concrete once witnessed.

Unless you Really need to see sections of the wall, skip this. Any original graffiti is gone, replaced with a couple of high schoolish Chris+Don 4ever type crap. Located behind the animal sciences bldg.

Listed as one of Truro , Nova Scotia, attractions. Located in Bible Hill, but very difficult to find. No signage at all. If you can get to Dalhousie University, you are very close. This attraction is behind the Agricultural Campus , at #58 River Road just behind the Haley Institute of Animal Science and Aquaculture. Very stark and quite depressing.... More

We were going to check these out while on our stay in Truro and found out that they had moved from their previous location. They are now on the NS Agriculture Campus in Bible Hill (a suburb of Truro). They are in a little rock garden just off the Cobequid trail, it is a nice hike around the campus and... More

The berlin wall sections are an excellent addition to the town. Unfortunately they are not well protected, looked after and they are not overly spoken about. Makes it hard to find them, and for those who are not looking for them actively. Definitely not a "stumble upon" attraction.

Amazing that something so historic has come to a little town like Truro. It used to be right in the town centre but with very poor surroundings - untended garden, concrete buildings either side etc... it has now moved to the college where I'm sure it has a more pleasant home, but just the little bit more difficult to get...

Actually I probably drive by these 3 - 4 times a week and now never look at them. I realize their history and signifigance but they just look so out of place. People coming into Truro and driving by must wonder what they are standing there for.

Firstly, there are no plaques stating that these outcroppings of broken wall are the Berlin wall. People dont even believe you when you tell them it is. They sit in an ugly part of town in an unkempt lot and do nothing but attract birds to sit on them and leave droppings. Not sure why Truro needs a section of... More
