Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 Celebrates Its Official Reopening

The Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 celebrated its official reopening on June 25, 2015 with the unveiling of Canadian Immigration Hall, a new exhibition showcasing the vast contributions of newcomers to Canada’s culture, economy and way of life, from past to present day.

The opening of Canadian Immigration Hall, and the recent reopening of Rudolph P. Bratty Hall, marks the completion of the Museum’s $30 million expansion.

The reimagined Rudolph P. Bratty Hall explores Pier 21’s rich history as an immigration facility from 1928 to 1971, while Canadian Immigration Hall expands beyond the Pier 21 years to explore the broader story of immigration to Canada. Both new spaces engage visitors using state-of-the-art digital technology, experiential immersives and participatory activities.
