Pier 21 served as “the gateway to Canada” for one million immigrants and refugees between 1928 and 1971. It was the place that first welcomed these newcomers to Canada and where soldiers destined to serve overseas in the Second World War departed Pier 21 holds an incredibly important place in our history, for Canadians as a whole. Today Pier 21, a national historic site, is also a national museum. It is frequented by locals, tourists and of course school and community groups!

The incredibly knowledgeable staff are happy to help you with anything you need, there are multiple hands-on activities offered, as well as a new film called “in Canada.”

As you walk in, one of the first things you see is a wall of bricks with the names of immigrants who have chosen to support the Museum. It is fun to search for names you may recognize! Is your family name on the wall? Visiting the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 is an incredibly important activity and ‘a must’ for anyone new to Nova Scotia or Canada!

    We went to the market, with a smile on our faces and as we walked down the pier we ended at Pier 21. It is rather mind blowing to think how many Canadians came through here, and how much of our country was built by people who walked right through that exact spot.

    So much of who we are and what we do as a country comes from that single amazing building.

    I could spend all day here. I live how it explains the history of Canada as most of are immigrants through our ancestors. And then it explains the current topics of immigration like how they feel, what the process is, and how immigrants contribute to our society! My favorite part new exhibit DAY 1. It mixed art and information together so we can experience the information WOW

    I love the opportunity to share different cultural traditions with my family and to explore how they have interacted and continue to interact with our own identities, culture and expression.

    When I visited Pier 21, I was not only astounded by the incredible information provided by the kind staff but the visual presentation, called Oceans of Hope was absolutely fantastic! Not quite a film, not quite a live performance, but non the less amazing! It gave me a really accurate and creative idea of the people who would be passing through Pier 21, and what life would have been like for them. Talk is nice, but its cool to see it right in front of you! You cant go to Pier 21 without watching it! It MADE the experience for me!
