The Nova Scotia Museum is responsible for the provincial collection of over one million artifacts and specimens. As well, we oversee the maintenance of more than 210 buildings, four floating vessels and nine locomotives.
Our Favourite Objects
Nova Scotians and people around the world can experience part of the province's expansive museum collection online, from Jurassic-aged fossils to Mi'kmaq moose hair embroidery. Nova Scotia Made, Nova Scotia Used, Nova Scotia Found is a virtual exhibit showcasing images and information about 100 artifacts and specimens that reflect the diversity of the province's culture and heritage.
Joseph Howe Infosheet
In honour of Joseph Howe, the Nova Scotia Museum has prepared an Infosheet about his background and his impact on this province. Also, explore Joseph Howe - Learning with Objects, a resource for Teachers.
The Nova Scotia Museum Research Grant Program, administered by the museum's board of governors, annually contributes funding toward research projects that improve Nova Scotians' understanding of heritage or offer a different interpretation of our province's cultural history.
