About

The Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21

The Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 is located in the national historic site at the Halifax seaport where nearly one million immigrants landed in Canada from 1928 to 1971. Today, the Museum is honoured to be the caretakers of the individual voices that woven together reveal Canada’s ongoing story of identity and belonging. Rich with first-person accounts, intimate oral histories, archival photographs, artifacts and immersive experiences, our permanent and travelling exhibitions explore themes of journey, arrival, belonging and contributions situated within larger historical, political and social contexts.
