A thoroughly well run historic site giving and showing how the fort shaped Halifax. The museum packed with artifacts from all the major conflicts and the people involved. Student carry out the reenactments, drilling, target practice and firing the 12'o clock gun as well as providing information. The First World War trench system is very interesting. Bill in the museum was a fountain of knowledge. Given that it's free entry this year I'd say it's a must but would happily pay given how good it is.

Wrote a short story about this park and this tower in particular really good place for running, exploring and just having a picnic. If you visit Halifax this should be first on your list of things to do/visit.

I visited Government House during Doors Open Halifax 2017 and enjoyed a wonderful tour. Our tour guide did a fantastic job sharing what he knew of the building history, his experience with the Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia and about what happens when the Queen and other members of the royal family visit. As part of the Doors Open Halifax event, we had the special opportunity to go to the second floor which is not normally open to the public.
