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

I was disappointed in this place. I am interested in geology, so I was really excited to travel from Halifax... but the place was much smaller than I expected, and the exhibits are too few for the entrance fee they charge. I am sure they can do better to make more people come. It is a far place to visit,... More

We had been passing over rocks on the beach with small black marks and/or white dots. Come to find out they were fossils. Would have loved them for my classroom. Come here first instead of last on your Fundy Beach vacation.

This museum is quite small and not worth the $17 spent for the three of us to get in. A few neat exhibits but not much hands-on and overall it was disappointing.

FundyGeo, Manager at Fundy Geological Museum, responded to this review

The Museum offers opportunities for visitors to explore the gallery, and offers tours of the exhibits by students during the summer months. There are also guided walks that the museum offers to provide experiences that expand the exhibits to rocks seen outside along the shores of the Bay of Fundy. There are plans to develop more exhibits that involve interactive... More
