March Break

Avast ye landlubbers! There are squawking parrots and shifty pirates and fun for all at our March Break event!


Due to the nasty weather forecasted for Wednesday, Pirates of Halifax will be shivering timbers at the Museum on Saturday, March 18th instead, from 1-4 pm. Storytime 2:00 – 2:30pm. Wednesday’s event is cancelled.

While parents and grandparents explore our exhibits, there are activities throughout to keep the younger crowd busy
