Celebrate Canada Day with FREE entry!
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.
