The Unexpected From the Collection

This summer, play curator by exploring not-so-industrial artifacts not usually on display.



To celebrate the Nova Scotia Museum’s 150th anniversary, Erika, our curator, invites you behind-the-scenes into our artifact storage rooms. Tours are offered Tuesdays and Thursdays until Sept. 6, 2018.


Museum of Industry

Museum of Industry 

One of Canada’s few comprehensive industrial museums, the Nova Scotia Museum of Industry tells the story of work and workers. Here you will find technology, steam engines and locomotives, cars and coal mining. Children will love the hands-on fun, the trains, and the demos. Find the true meaning of “made in Nova Scotia” at the Museum of Industry.
