Description

Within walking distance of downtown, this Museum 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 to pet Gus the turtle, find the hiding places of tiny mice and voles and watch butterflies in the summer months.
