What's your first thought about a Geological Museum? Going to be a bit boring? Well this one isn't - it's so child/adult friendly you wouldn't believe it. You can touch such a lot of the objects and the way the Museum is set out is so clever. A great couple of hours to spend on a cold April afternoon in... More

Loved the exhibits, and the tours offered to local beaches for rockhounding. The kids are fascinated with the dinosaurs and fossils.

The rocks rock. Carrie rocks. We enjoyed the museum and made some purchases. Upon making some purchases, we asked the gift shop if it was possible for them to ship our rocks. I noticed blueberries were native to the area and asked if they had blueberry syrup. I wanted a non-perishable native product to bring back home to the USA.... More

This museum is an easy to follow, step-by-step, informative museum. Not very big, but full of information about the geology, and history in and around Nova Scotia. Well done.

I really enjoyed this museum! It's creatively organized, has interactive exhibits, and children's activities I wanted to do too. We would have gone on a beach tour had we known in advance what the timing is. The gift shop is great!

I'm married to a geologist and so this sort of thing is always on our list. We've seen many wonderful museums over the years and this one is very nice. It is small, but everything is hands on and the kids had a great time. We were arriving very shortly before closing time so they waved our fee. After viewing... More

Very child-friendly, but could do with more for adults, took about 45 mins to see. Great tour to Wasson's Bluff with two geology students the following day. Very friendly staff
