You enter the Army Museum at the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site, and the discovery begins. Everywhere you look, you see rare and unique military artifacts. Some date back to the days when Halifax was a vital British naval port. Others trace the evolution of Canada’s forces, and the formation of our post-World War II alliances. Together, they tell a story that spans more than 400 years.
Located on the second floor of the Cavalier Building, the Army Museum is a popular attraction at the Halifax Citadel. Since 1953, this private, nonprofit institution has been faithfully preserving and promoting Atlantic Canada's military heritage. The items on display come from a vast collection of more than 70,000 military artifacts. Each one offers a glimpse into the dedication and sacrifices of the brave soldiers who have served our country. And they showcase the important contribution Halifax made to Canada’s defence efforts, especially in World Wars I and II.
The Army Museum is open during the same hours as the Halifax Citadel. It is a member of the Organization of Military Museums of Canada, operating with the assistance of the Nova Scotia Museum and Parks Canada.
