Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 - South End: One Adult Admission or Family Admission to the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21

History is like Frankenstein's monster; all it takes to make it come alive is the right education, a large body of artifacts exhumed from the earth, and an electrical storm. Learn from the past with today's Groupon to the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 on the Halifax waterfront. Choose between two options:

• For $4, you get one adult admission (up to an $8.60 value).
• For $10, you get a family admission for two adults and up to three children 16 and under (a $22 value).

Children 5 and younger normally get free admission.

The exhibits at the Canadian Museum of Immigration celebrate and illuminate diverse immigrant experiences through a host of mediums. Located in the former ocean-liner terminal that admitted more than one million immigrants to the country from 1928 to 1971, the museum hosts a permanent exhibition devoted to those years, featuring an informative film and the chance to track down family members of noble or android decent through the Scotiabank Research Centre. Photo-based artists who are also first- and second-generation immigrants take centre stage in the temporary exhibition Revolutionizing Cultural Identity: Photography and the Changing Face of Immigration, which tackles questions of globalization and assimilation. Other installations, as well as research and education programs, provide visitors ample opportunities to delve into thought-provoking topics related to Canadian identity and immigration.

The people at Pier 21 are wonderful. The guides are knowledgeable and gear their talk to the audience. We always enjoy listening to them. We come home with more information and understanding that we share with others. Well done!
