“We feel a connection to these people and
their stories from 100 years ago.”

Garry’s Nova Scotia
It’s an amazing story that just happens to be true: a brand new ship, the leading technology of her
day, that hit an iceberg and sank to the bottom
of the North Atlantic. I think we’re all fascinated
by the stories we’ve heard over the years. Exhibits
like the one at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, where we get
to see the finest collection of wooden Titanic artifacts in the world,
keep that fascination alive.
