Whitney Pier Historical Museum


Whitney Pier Museum


The aim of the Whitney Pier Historical Society is to preserve the history of Whitney Pier and the diverse, rich culture that makes this part of Sydney very unique.

Housed in what was once a Jewish Synagogue, the WPHS operates a unique museum dedicated to a community that developed unlike any other in Canada.

Built around the Steel Plant, “the Pier” became home to people from all parts of the globe who came seeking a new life. They brought with them the riches of deeply rooted cultures that still enrich our lives today. It is this diversity that we try to capture and display.
