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.
