November 11th - Remembrance Day

Parks Canada and the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site are pleased to take part in Remembrance Day celebrations on Tuesday, November 11th. Don’t miss the 21-gun salute at 11 am to remember the sacrifices of those who have kept Canada strong, proud and free. This year, a new exhibit at the Army Museum marks the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War. The Road to Vimy and Beyond includes a replica of the Canadian National Vimy Memorial to commemorate the service and sacrifice of the soldiers who fought in the Great War, highlighting the stories of Nova Scotians who answered the call. Museum hours are from 10 am – 2 pm and admission to the entire site is free.
