From Fort St. John I flew to the other end of the country back to my hometown of Halifax, Nova Scotia, to get in a long overdue visit with my family. While home, my mom and I went on a total museum-blitz as she called it. Ever since I started my masters degree, I’ve been wanting to revisit the museums at home to see what I think of them now that I have all of this new knowledge, but it never seemed to happen. I either wasn’t home for long enough, or it was Christmas and way too busy to do anything other than Christmas.
We managed to fit just about all of the major ones in, and I made a point of taking lots of pictures and playing tourist in my own backyard (something I think we don’t do often enough in general). This post won’t have any analysis or insights, just lots of pictures, nostalgia, and a rekindled sense of regional identity.
Our first stop was at the Discovery Centre, which was on the whole very cool. I was very lucky that when we went, they had a special exhibit about rock and roll and music, so I was in my element!
After that, we took a trip to the Citadel Hill!
The next day we started at the Museum of Natural History, and then continued the adventure over to the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21.
Pier 21 was definitely one of my favorite stops! I really appreciated how thoughtful and interactive it was.
Next up was the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, followed by the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia!
