  • Expo on frogs is great! Perfect habitat done with a lot of attention on details. Great spécimens shown! I am impressed 👍😊
  • A great place for kids to learn n also for adults...dinosaur skeleton..earth weather firecasts...different animals sculptures...place yo learn relax your back too
  • The folks at the Museum have a great way of displaying their exhibits. Having hands on displays, like the Sable Island research station, that can be explored and interacted with is great for learning. I liked the display of the Oak Island treasure too!
  • I have been coming for over 40 years and still love it! I was expecting dinosaur models this morning at the travelling exhibit, but they're real! It was so nice seeing the Chinese dragon and display, too, as this time last year I was at the Chinese New Year parade in Ottawa and enjoyed the dragon for the first time. I was also able to identify some of my sea shells. Always clean, plus great staff!
  • Small, but interesting and informative. Cool trinkets in the gift shop also, particularly for Geology and rock nerds. Cheap entry fee, we'll worth it and we'll enjoyed. Get off the couch and learn something!
