Part of this popular waterfront museum used to be a chandlery, where all the gear needed to outfit a vessel was sold. You can smell the charred ropes, cured to protect them from saltwater. There's a range of permanent exhibits including displays on the RMS Titanic and the Halifax Explosion. Outside at the dock you can explore the CSS Acadia, a retired hydrographic vessel from England.

Canada's official Naval Memorial, the last WWII corvette, HMCS Sackville , is docked outside and staffed by the Canadian Navy.
