It is small but still interesting. Kids will appreciate the interactive games and animators. As an adult...it depends. If you had the chance to visit similar but bigger museum, you'll find it nice to see, ok for a rainy day, but no more. On the other hand, if this is your first experience with such a museum, you'll learn interesting... More

Great museum, great setting, well worth your time. This museum can be of interest to anyone or any age. It should be timed so you get get down to the rocks and look around for a while. The staff is very knowledgeable.

Liked:Cool place to take the kids to go looking and discovering fossils on the beach, cliffs and museum. Disliked:You have to be aware of the tides before you go down to the beach.

One of the cool parts of the Fundy Geological Museum is getting to the museum. When you arrive, you cross over one of the dam's that keep tide waters out of the field but allow river water to escape and there's some birds, too. The museum offers many hands on experiences for children, while adding enough cool rock and fossil... More

We returned to the museum this summer (previous review below) and I wanted to add a few comments to recommend the fossil walk. We weren't able to do it last summer, and the bonus of an actual dino dig taking place ensured that we went in August. The tour was led by Ken, the curator of the museum. At first... More

I have been visiting the town of parrsboro with my family for as long as I can remember. Every summer that we went, my mom insisted that we go to the Dinosaur museum. This place used to seem fun, exciting, and interesting. I enjoyed spending a good three or four hours roaming the place, gazing at amazing, objects. This was... More

Was very small thought it would take more than 30mins to read and see everything! The building looked large but the actual Museum is very small, some interesting things but expected more!

This is a small overpriced geological museum. If you are trying to decide between this and Joggins, I would choose Joggins.

small museum. only takes moments. not sure it is worth the $25 for two adults and one child. Not enough information to constitute the cost.

We are sorry that you felt that our museum was small and not enough information. Our fee for a 2 adult family with 1 child is $17 not $25 as you stated. More
