So much that I didn't know - particularly about the big explosion.

Halifax played a critical role in the Titanic disaster, and the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic has a wonderful exhibit re-telling the story of that ill-fated ship and the efforts by Halifax sailors in the recovery. But while everyone knows about the Titanic, probably few know about the cataclysmic explosion in 1917 that destroyed part of the city and caused more deaths than the Chicago fire or the San Francisco quake. The museum does a fine job telling that sad story in the life of this city.

This visit, there was only time for the Titanic exhibit. It is phenomenal, as advertised. It is not sensation - but respectful of those who lost their lives and the people of Halifax who had to cope with the remains, literally.

I was skeptical about this museum but once I got inside, I was amazed at the historical significance Halifax played in the shipping business. Halifax has an amazing history (both good and sad). I really enjoyed the Titanic display as well as learning about the Halifax fire....a definite must see when one visits this great city!

A great museum with detailed sections on the Titanic as well as the Halifax Explosion. Lots to see and learn. Admission is a very reasonable 4.75 for adults.
