Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21Halifax, NSMuseums & Visitor Centers
The Personal Stories of Immigrants.
The Pier 21 Gallery has a number of large “WOW” moments. There is an immersive recreation of an ocean vessel’s dining room and cabin that truly help transport the visitor into the experience of crossing the ocean to Canada. In addition, there is a scaled recreation of a Colonist Train Car that visitors enter, sit in, and relive being transported across Canada, while listening to Oral Histories of real immigrant stories.
Storytelling through Colourful Mosaics.
The colours and saturation changed through the sections as visitors followed the path of immigrants to Canada, from an almost monochromatic palette at the beginning of the narrative to an extraordinarily vivid and vibrant mosaic pattern in the final section of the exhibition. The colourful mosaic patterns were used as destination walls within exhibition zones and the general colour palettes for each section took their cues from these mosaics.
