March 16 to March 24, 2019
Daily programs between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm (Sundays between 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm).
This spring, we are is hosting a travelling display called Canada at Play: 100 years of Games, Toys and Play. This is a travelling exhibit from the Royal Ontario Museum. The exhibit celebrates historical games, toys and sports equipment from our past. Celebrating this tradition of play will be at the heart of our March Break program.
With our admission ($11.85 for a family) you’ll be able to explore our galleries and try your hand at a variety of fun games and activities while exploring the contrasts and connections between modern games, toys and sports and the traditional activities enjoyed by children and their families over the years.
Activities will include historical boardgames, crafts and the opportunity to learn Morse Code from volunteers from the Halifax Amateur Radio Club. Events and demonstrations will also include an exploration of virtual reality, ranging from old school stereoscopes and View Masters to modern VR technology (select days)
You can also grab your sou’wester and oilskins and visit our historic William Robertson and Sons Ship Store and invoke the age of the famous schooner Bluenose by exploring our Days of Sail Gallery.
Vintage films will be shown throughout the day in Warehouse Theatre. Please check the daily in-house schedule when you arrive to see which movies are playing.
