Not a huge museum, but the people were friendly and there were some interesting exhibits. Had a fun time. Likely only alot about one to two hours for the whole thing. We went at the right time for Gus to go out for his walk (3:30). That was fun.

This was a well organized and interesting museum. The staff member who was feeding at a live glass tank was extremely well informed on his specialty knowledge about the reptiles he was feeding and easily held our attention. Great visit!

Group on is great for the savings and you may consider places that you didn't of. I was going on a date and with the weather where do you go and what do you do? The museum was great, lol i also learned a few things while there and it prompted conversations that normally won't happen.

From Our Editors

Surprisingly spry for a 90-year-old, Gus the gopher tortoise greets Museum of Natural History visitors while strolling around the premises and snacking on clover and dandelions. As the museum's mascot for more than six decades, Gus has amassed a substantial following, and he keeps his 1,500+ Facebook friends abreast of the latest goings-on at his home's seven permanent galleries. Unearthed tools, arrowheads, and Tupperware of the Mi'kmaq and Acadian peoples await in the archaeology exhibit, and the pre-contact culture, religion, and language of Nova Scotia come to life in the ethnology hall. Life-sized models of feathered bipeds and four-legged furballs lurk in the mammals-and-birds gallery. Live snakes, frogs, salamanders, and honeybees call Netukulimk home, embodying a Mi'kmaq conception of the relationship between the human and natural worlds.
