Natural History Museum Museum
Take a jump back millions of years into the past at Joggins Fossil Cliffs Centre, a World Heritage Site. A guided tour of the museum enlightens visitors with information about the time period that created the fossils and most of the coal deposits in the area. Head out on a short walk to the cliffs, where the fossils in the museum were discovered. Scour the beach and the rocks for fossils, and get an up-close look at your discoveries. Make sure to put the fossils back, as visitors are not allowed to take them home.
