The Halfax Cital is a National Historic Site since 1951.
The present Citadel in 1856, but since the founding of Halifax in 1749 several fortresses were build on the hill.-
On the first floor of the Cavalier building you find the Information Centre and giftshop.
On the second floor of the Cavalier building you will find the Army Museum with display of armour through the ages.
You can walk around the walls, see the cannons, viewing platforms, the casements and the Musketry Gallery.
One thing you must like is the music of bagpipes.
From the outer walls viweing platforms you can look far on Halifax surroundings like Georges Island, another former British fortress.
At the end of the day the closing of the fortress will be louly announced by the doorman.
