Sable Island National Park Reserve, 300 kilometers southeast of Halifax, is famous for its wild horses and shipwrecks. This exciting exhibit explores the rich diversity of plants and animals that thrive on the sandbar island despite the winds, waves and isolation. The 2,000-square-foot exhibit includes a recreated research station and a sandbox that allows visitors to change the island’s topography by moving the sand. The exhibit also includes a rearing horse skeleton that rotates so visitors can see it against a backdrop of a window mural of two full-sized stallions. Also at the exhibit, selections from the largest Maritimes walrus collection in the world, with skull, jawbone and tusk specimens dating back to the mid-1700s!
