It was raining the day we wanted to visit the beaches of the Bay of Fundy, so we escaped to the museum. It is a lovely building with lots of space. We didn't learn anything new here, but we were already well-versed in the geology of the area. A great place to bring youngsters. It would be nice if they... More

We have come to Parrsboro to learn more about minerals and we could not but pass the Geology Museum in the town. The museum has a big building and easy to find. The problem is that exhibition is oriented more for very small children, so there are lots of toys and happy dinosaurs and all kind of staff as in... More

A great place for young kids. Would have liked to see a little more in depth descriptions for us adults but clean and we'll presented. The gift shop is good and nothing was over priced. The staff were also really helpful with directions and general knowledge of the area. I would recommend for young families. Thank you!

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.

A small museum but lots of information. Great explanations for local tides and rocks. Nice play/learn areas for children. Interesting gift shop with unique items. Nice little facility out front for dogs.
