School’s out but you can still discover and learn with a visit to a Nova Scotia Museum this summer. Best part? The provincial museums will be offering FREE admission to all 28 museums during the months of July and August!

The museums include a few gems in HRM – The Museum of Natural History, The Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, and the Uniacke Estate Museum Park.

Museum of Natural History

Something ‘Wonderfull’ is at the Museum of Natural History. In addition to their permanent exhibits – exploring the natural, cultural, and historical wonders of Nova Scotia – you can check out their newest exhibit, Wonderfull. This fun exhibit features rarely seen and never before seen items and specimens from the collections of the Nova Scotia Museum. Wonderfull is on now until September 6th. The museum also has amazing daily activities that you can check out during your visit and don’t forget to stop and say hello to Gus, their beloved 98-year-old gopher tortoise!

Maritime Museum of the Atlantic

The Maritime Museum of the Atlantic has fun and interactive stories and exhibits that define Nova Scotia’s connection to the sea. Learn all about the Titanic and the key role that Halifax played in the disaster and check out their Halifax Explosion exhibit – a defining moment in our history. After your visit to the museum, take a stroll along the Halifax Waterfront and grab a snack or bring a picnic to enjoy the beautiful boardwalk.

Uniacke Estate Museum Park

View the beautiful house at Uniacke Estate and truly experience a part of Nova Scotia history, untouched by time. Then, go explore one or more of the seven outstanding hiking trails available on this 930-hectare property. You can also check out their Facebook page to find some fun outdoor challenges for you to complete during your visit.

Once you have explored the museums of HRM, take a little day trip to visit some other favourites including the Ross Farm Museum, the Fundy Geological Museum, the Nova Scotia Firefighters Museum, Sherbrooke Village, and many more!
