Doing some spring cleaning?

Our cleaning project is this Golding Jobber printing press. With the advice of a conservator, we are carrying out basic cleaning to have the press look as it did when it was in use.


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.
