Situated on the far side of the Citadel, this modern, midsize museum offers a good introduction to the flora and fauna of Nova Scotia. Galleries include botany, mammals, and birds, plus exhibits of archaeology and Mi’kmaq culture.

Gus Walk

On Mondays – Fridays at 3:00 pm, join Museum staff for a Gus Walk! Gus The Tortoise is the oldest known gopher tortoise in the world and has been at the Museum for over 70 years.  On a Gus stroll, you can accompany Gus as he meanders around the museum. When the weather is nice, you may find Gus in the museum’s backyard!
