Our collections, over a million objects and growing, reflect the incredible diversity of Nova Scotia’s human and natural histories. Curators, researchers, interpreters and collections care professionals work with artifacts and specimens representing archaeology, ethnology, botany, geology, cultural history, and zoology. Take some time to explore and learn about our collections, research, exhibits, publications, and behind the scenes work at the Nova Scotia Museum.
