Archaeology on our site

Our past is all around us. We are attempting to find the buried remains of an iron foundry erected here in 1828 by a British coal mining company. Learn more about our Archaeology Program.


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.
