Each of Nova Scotia's 87 Canadian National Historic Sites tell the story of centuries of adventure, of cultural diversity, conquest, discovery and scenic beauty.
Step back into the 18th century to discover how English and French troops struggled for control over North America at the Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site.

Become a solider for a day or learn to fire an authentic Snider-Enfield rifle just as they did in 1869 at the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site before wandering down the hill to experience the Halifax Public Gardens which opened to the public in 1875 and received its National Historic Site designation in 1984 for being a rare surviving Victorian garden in Canada.
