While I am not Canadian, I enjoy learning about immigrants and their experience coming to North America. The exhibit was smaller than I expected, although nicely done. There was a new film about recent immigration experience and why people came to Canada. Very interesting.

A must see for anyone who has/had family who entered Canada through the port of Halifax. If you have any documents from that time bring them with you. They love being able to photo copy and file old documents. If you identify the ship that your family came over on they will provide you with a picture of that ship and any other documents/info that has been filed under that ships voyages. Really really neat stuff.

Good exhibits. Touching movie that is a must see. Artifacts are on display. Good view of the harbor from the glassed front of the building.

Super spot to trace your ancestors. Really helpful staff willing to really dig for the info. Great presentations in the rail car by immigrants. Really enjoyed the short film. Anxious to see what the renovations produce.
