  • you can only see the Province House by tour and those do not run continiously. We just missed a tour and it was 2 hours for the next one  more »
  • We had a wonderful visit. Not to be missed is the exhibit on Joseph Howe and his trial to secure freedom of the press. The building is beautifully maintained and the staff super friendly.  more »
  • Found this by accident, it was were we picked up the bus to return to the port. Lovely building, security more than willing to tell you about everything.  more »
