This cultural institution pays tribute to the black community of Africville, which was located on the northern shore of Halifax Harbour, and to their neighborhood, which was destroyed in the 1960s to make way for industrial development. The city apologized in 2010 and allocated land and funds for a replica of the church that was the heart of the community. The museum, with its archival photographs and multimedia exhibits, tells a story of a resilient community in the face of discrimination and hardship. Admission is cash only, and the museum is closed on weekends in the off-season.
