Maritime Museum of the Atlantic

This museum has one of Canada's finest collections of both ship models and ship portraits, the world's largest collection of wooden artefacts from the Titanic, some rare and beautiful examples of unique Nova Scotian boatbuilding traditions in its small craft collection, and a collection of about 24,000 marine photographs, some dating from the 19th century. The exhibition includes shipwreck treasures, naval World War II convoys, steamboats and the opportunity to explore the 1913-built ship, CSS Acadia, at the dockside. The museum also has a large collection of genealogical resources, including journals, diaries, ship's logs, shipping registers and a library containing more than 5,000 books relating to shipping.
