Maritime Museum of the Atlantic information
Part of this fun 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 wildly popular display on the Titanic and another on the Halifax Explosion. The 3D film about the Titanic costs $5. Outside at the dock you can explore the CSS Acadia, a retired hydrographic vessel from England.
The last WWII corvette HMCS Sackville is docked nearby and staffed by the Canadian Navy.
