Working history architectural treat. It is always great to see an architectural gem functioning for the purpose it was built.

This old building is worth a visit for its grand and detailed architecture. Sitting at the north end of a park, it is a delight to see. It really stands out amidst the mid 70's style buildings around it.

We were fortunate enough to get and inside tour on the Open Doors Day. There was a good presentation regarding the Halifax Explosion and we even got to partake in a short "play" (Thirsty Burglar). It was nice to see where the council functions.

We loved the miniature 'arc de triomphe', as if you are in Legoland and the Halifaxians built a replica of the iconic one in Paris. It is a pity that the historic city hall is surrounded by ugly modern office buildings.

City Hall anchors one end of the parade square. I love the new adirondack chairs throughout the square. City Hall is fun to see when it's open as is St. Paul's

Such a beautiful city hall! Also a great spot for photography. I've heard that it(and the church nearby) will be opened for everyone in summer.

The best part of City Hall is that the bells ring every 15 minutes. You get the best effect right on the hour. The architecture is decent and parade square has some monuments. I'm not sure if they offer tours. I assume you can go...More
