Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21

Experience one of the leading Halifax attractions steps away from the Westin Nova Scotian. The Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 collects, shares and pays tribute to the Canadian immigration story. Pier 21 is a National Historic Site which was the gateway to Canada for one million immigrants between 1928 and 1971, and the departure point for 500,000 Canadian military personnel during the Second World War.

Today, Pier 21 hosts Atlantic Canada’s only national museum! Visit the Museum’s main exhibition dedicated to the Pier 21 years, take a guided tour in English or French, and watch the emotional film Oceans of Hope.  Discover your family roots in the Scotiabank Research Centre and explore temporary and special exhibitions related to Canada’s immigration story.
