As of October 25, 2014, we will be closed temporarily for significant renovations while we undergo an exciting capital and thematic expansion that will nearly double our size and include two new permanent exhibitions.
In May 2015, we will launch our expanded Museum. It will feature a new permanent exhibition telling the Pier 21 story—a rich history of immigration from 1928 to 1971 that is the family history of more than 1 in 5 Canadians today.
We will also unveil a new exhibition telling the broader stories of immigration. This new section of the Museum will showcase the vast contributions of immigrants to Canada’s culture, economy and way of life.
As a national museum, we are now able to continue to highlight the very special role Pier 21 has played in shaping our nation, while also being able to share the overarching story of immigration to Canada.
