  • The stories presented in the museum were very interesting and educational. As an immigrant myself, I felt very moved by them. I recommend this museum to everyone. If you are interested in understanding the experience of immigrants and the many reasons they choose to leave their countries, this place will be eye opening. It's also a great way to learn about some of the history of Halifax and Canada.
