Saturday Snapshot


 

Saturday Snapshots is hosted by West Metro Mommy

August 2013 - Halifax Nova Scotia

The Canadian Museum of Immigration is at Pier 21 on Halifax's seafront. You can take a guided tour, which I suggest, as ours gave a face to all the amazing immigrants who came to Canada for a better life.



They have recreated the warehouse to reflect how immigrants would have seen it.


Recreation of a train that many immigrants would have boarded for western Canada.







There is a ship which shows how many of the immigrants travelled across rough seas.

  1. Thanks for this wonderful and informative post! I never knew about The Canadian Museum of Immigration is at Pier 21 on Halifax's seafront. Important historical site indeed. I came by the west coast via the Vancouver airport forty some years ago. ;)

  2. Your photos tell such an interesting story. I have not been to Canada's east coast (I live in the Pacific Northwest) but I hope to go there some day. When I do, this museum will be on my must-see list.
