The Mastodon femur recently put back on display at the Museum of Natural History, was found in Middle River, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. This bone has a big history!
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.
Museum publications share research about our collection to advance our understanding of the world and encourage research by others. The Museum publishes Books, Curatorial Reports, Infosheets, and Exhibit Research Reports.
