Wonderful museum right beside the waters of the Bay of Fundy. Activities for the kids all summer and beautiful displays inside. The fossils on display and dinosaur bones that have been found locally are amazing. If you are travelling in Nova Scotia you can't miss this. When you are done looking around, you can drive 5 mins down the road... More

This museum was wonderful for learning about geology. Friendly staff and great exhibits. A recommended follow up is the Joggins Fossil Cliffs Interpretation Centre where you can see what youve learned about at the museum. Was a bit smaller than expected but full of information!

I recently watched an excellent documentary called 'Your Inner Fish' which mentioned this museum, so since we were in Nova Scotia and looking for places to visit we dropped in. Parrsboro is quite a trek from Halifax, but you do pass Tidal Bay which has quite a few excellent wineries. If you time it right you can also see the... More

A small museum with lots of information. It is very well done and follows the geological development of the earth and Fundy Bay's unique place in that history.

We stopped by not knowing what to expect and were pleasantly surprised. We had no idea the region was so renown for fossils. It was very informative and we walked away impressed.

Small but interesting museum. My kids enjoyed it. We only had 30 minutes to see it but we felt we saw it well. Nice gift shop too.

Wasn't really what we were expecting. The museum is very small, even if you read everything it will only take twenty minutes at most. What they do have is nice, clean and informative. Luckily it is not too expensive it was seventeen dollars for a family..

A Must See! Dinosaurs and geology. Fascinating for children and adults. They give a history which highlights Nova Scotia and the discovery of the worlds smallest dinosaur.
