Explore the wonders of Nova Scotia's land and sea at the Museum of Natural History. Get nose to nose with a Pilot Whale skeleton or the world's most accurate life-size Sei Whale model. Check out the fossil evidence for North America's oldest dinosaurs - 100 million years older than Tyrannosaurus rex. Be playful in the Bone Zone or peer down into a Bald Eagle's nest. Live displays vary with the season - local wild mice, snakes and turtles, frogs and salamanders, fish, bats, spiders, bugs, poison ivy, carnivorous plants. Kids love Gus the Gopher Tortoise, the Museum's unofficial mascot for more than 50 years.
