10 Best Family Destinations for Learning Experiences

5 of 11
MaritimeMuseumoftheAtlantic

Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, Nova Scotia


To experience the nautical history of the New World visit this small, easy to digest waterfront museum in Halifax. In the oldest museum of its kind in Canada, children will enjoy the Days of Sail Gallery, where reconstructions and small replicas of sailing vessels are on display. Other popular exhibits include the Age of Steam Gallery and the eerie Shipwreck Treasures of Nova Scotia. A favorite is the museum's Titanic exhibit which features an extensive collection of artifacts from the doomed ocean liner, including the only intact deck chair that came ashore at this site.

Next: Mystic Seaport: Museum of America and the Sea, Connecticut
