Museum of Natural HistoryThe Museum of Natural History, which focuses on the province of Nova Scotia, contains—among other wonders—a bee colony, a butterfly house, an extensive collection of Mi'kmaq artifacts and a whale skeleton. The museum has strong educational programs for the public, such as the Science on a Sphere shows, in which weather and planetary data are projected onto an 18-foot round screen. Animal encounters happen almost daily—you can get close up with a gopher tortoise and tidal pool creatures such as sea stars and scallops.
