On April 12, 2022, the Phase 1 of the Regional Museum Strategy was presented to Regional Council (Phase 1 Regional Museum Strategy - Apr 12/22 Regional Council | Halifax.ca). Phase 1 of the strategy does not present a definitive vision for what a future HRM museum might resemble. Rather, it describes the heritage interpretation landscape and capacity in HRM as it currently exists, assembles and analyzes this data, and provides recommendations for Phase 2 of the strategy. When it is finally realized, the completed HRM Museum Strategy —and, presumably, the vision for an HRM regional museum, in whatever form it takes—will ensure that communities across the region have increased access to relevant content and programs that foster a deeper connection to the region’s diverse history and that sparks engagement within the community.
