“explore the history of Halifax”
Experience the Halifax Citadel, where the sounds of a modern, bustling port city are exchanged for the crack of rifle-fire and the skirl of bagpipes. The present Citadel was completed in 1856 and is the fourth in a series of British forts on this site. Today, the restored Citadel is a national landmark, commemorating Halifax’s role as a key naval station in the British Empire and bringing history to life in Atlantic Canada’s largest urban centre.
Make sure you get there early enough in the afternoon so that you get to see the firing of the canon, the rifles, and the bagpipe band. We saw all of this at the 3 o'clock tour. Get there at 1 pm or so and ask.
Your suppose to pay to get in...but we just walked in and then didnt go in to the center building right away...thats where they make you pay.
