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.
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.
