      The Maritime Museum of the Atlantic is housed in a nondescript brick building that is easily accessible from the boardwalk along Halifax Harbour or from the main entrance in the downtown core on Lower Water Street, Halifax.

      Inside the building is one of the most famous exhibitions in the world, that of the artefacts of the Titanic. Millions of tourists from all over the globe come to see the Titanic exhibition annually, and I myself as a resident have visited several times.

      The Titanic exhibition includes old film reel

      showing the passengers boarding the huge vessel and excitedly waving goodbye to loved ones. This old, scratched, jerky film coverage, without sound of course chokes me up every time. How could the passengers possibly know that only days later they would all die?

      Even more moving than the film of the Titanic are the artefacts recovered from the vessel itself. Behind glass display cases are shoes, a trunk, an old wooden deck chair and actual pieces from the famed Titanic staircase that led into the upper class dining ...

      • area. You can actually touch pieces of the staircase, and given the fame of the subsequent Titanic movie, I actually felt awe and privilege being able to touch these pieces of wood.

        Further mementos such as copies of dining room menu’s, boarding tickets and newspapers documenting the Titanic’s maiden voyage, alongside a complete miniature rebuilt Titanic boat for tourists to see rounds out the exhibition. Huge blown up lifestyle photographs detailing the inside of cabins and various parts of the Titanic, actually make you feel like you are

        walking around inside the ship itself. One of my favourite things I did this spring was to get my photograph taken beside the blown up photograph of the Titanic staircase!

        If you are visiting the city of Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada, your trip will not be complete without a visit to the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, and several hours spent touring the Titanic exhibition. To my continued surprise, many people globally do not know that Halifax is home to the largest number of Titanic artefacts found anywhere in the world.
