Museums & Galleries

Within walking distance of downtown, Nova Scotia Museum of Natural History is a must see. Beautiful exhibits show life as it was for Nova Scotia natives. Examine the exquisite bead and quillwork on ancient clothing or check out the displays of local animals and insects. There is a see-through beehive that allows you to watch the critters go about their business. Kids especially love petting Gus the turtle, finding hiding places of tiny mice and voles and watching butterflies in the summer months.
