Each year, September 30 marks the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
The day honours the children who never returned home and Survivors of residential schools, as well as their families and communities. Public commemoration of the tragic and painful history and ongoing impacts of residential schools is a vital component of the reconciliation process.
Research is one of the fundamental activities of the Nova Scotia Museum. Our publications are available electronically through an Open Journal System catalogue hosted by Dalhousie University.
Delicate fossils found in museum are cleaned, repaired, and mounted in archival supports when the fossils are put on display or used for research. Check out our blog posts from Robbie Hussey and Tim Fedak.
