Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, Halifax

Situated in the heart of Halifax’s historic Waterfront, the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic is located on Lower Water Street, at the base of Prince Street. The Museum is also accessible from the Halifax Harbourwalk, a 3-km boardwalk that spans the length of the city’s downtown core.

The Museum is wheelchair accessible, equipped with a passenger elevator, wheelchair accessible stalls in the public washrooms, and automatic doors at two of the main entrances. Wheelchairs are also available to visitors at the Museum’s front desk upon request (limited availability).

The Maritime Museum of the Atlantic is the oldest and largest Maritime Museum in Canada, and is a valuable historical, cultural, and educational institution. Starting with a small space at the Halifax Dockyard in 1948, the museum as we know it today was established in 1982 on the Halifax Waterfront. Since then, it has had more than 4 million visitors.

Where can I park?
Some parking is available in the streets and lots around the museum. There is also a MetroPark pay-and-park garage located at 1557 Granville Street ($1 for first 20 minutes, $2.25 each hour afterward).
