The Halifax Public Gardens are the oldest Victorian gardens in North America and have been a source of enjoyment and pride for generations of Haligonians and visitors alike. Situated in the city's centre, surrounded by centuries old wrought iron gates, the lush landscape is punctuated by formal perennial and annual flower beds, Victorian gazebo and charming bridges. The Public Gardens has been a favorite for many and the destination for wedding photographers, families, seniors and romance.

You have felt this way after being dragged into a museum in which you have none to little interest. You spend a few.minutes inspecting some strange looking machinery. Boring. When will this end? And then relief!! A movie to watch, sitting,.time passing. Halifax demonstrated its empathy by caring for the remains of many doomed on the Tigantic. I wondered what the connection was between the museum and the Titanic...The directors of the Maritime know their visitors.

We arrived to the museum 1.5 hours before it closed thinking that would be plenty of time, but were mistaken. The tour of the main exhibit was fantastic, and given by a Canadian immigrant with her own story to include. The exhibits were interactive, and relatable for so many Canadians who are, or are closely connected to immigrants. The 1.5 hours was just enough time to go through the tour and main history of Pier 21, but I will have to return someday to explore the rest of the museum.
