Halifax Citadel National Historic Site

You might think you’ve been transported to the 1800s when you visit the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site. The restored fort is often filled with period-clad reenactors who give visitors a realistic glimpse into this landmark’s rich past. Tours are offered throughout the day and are included with admission. Don’t let the big bang you’ll hear scare you; it’s just the daily firing of the citadel’s noon gun.
