Battle of Atlantic Place will tell the story of Canadian’s achievement during the Battle of the Atlantic in WWII. This will not be a museum, but an innovative, experiential centre illuminating the whole story, from fighting U-Boats, to support by hundreds of communities across Canada building ships, supplying goods and material to win the longest battle in the history of man.
Located on the beautiful Halifax waterfront, the building will house the centre and will be architecturally breath-taking; with a glass wall facing the harbour, inside HMCS SACKVILLE, the last surviving corvette from WWII will be preserved with a Canso Flying Boat suspended overhead. The building will be as recognized as the Opera House in Australia and carry the same importance to Canadian’s as the Vimy Ridge Memorial and Juno Beach Centre.
