Enjoy the pageantry of the 78th Highlanders and enjoy the bustle of this British fort. Hear the boom of the noon gun followed by the traditional 21-gun salute at the entrance saluting battery.

Check out our NEW Signature exhibit, Fortress Halifax: A City Shaped by Conflict, chronicling the history of Kjipuktuk, (“che-book-took”), through its establishment as “Halifax” in 1749, to the mosaic of a city that is today. Visitors of all ages will enjoy the accessible and experiential nature of this multi-room exhibit.

It’s also a great opportunity to explore the outdoor “Storm the Beach” D-Day immersive exhibit, and stop into the Army Museum to learn about the important contribution Halifax made to Canada’s modern-day defence efforts.
