wall

It saddens me that they moved the wall pieces from downtown Truro to a location that I do not know. I want to take my grandbabies to see them and have pictures taken

This should be removed it's been gone for years now. Other places could be listed, Jamacian food is on the same street.

To see the large wall sections of Berlin leaves you with many raw feelings and gives you a wee glimpse of the past and the barriers mankind put up to isolate, punish/protect people. Tears always flow as I walk, drive past them. Frozen in time.

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.

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

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.
