  • We were recently there for the Egyptian Mummy’s exhibit. It was a great time and was well put together. The regular exhibits that they have are also fun to see. The kids always love the turtles...

  • On a get-away visit to Halifax, we decided to visit the Museum of Natural History to see the special exhibit about Egypt. There were great artifacts, mummies and coffins that were 1000s of years...

  • The museum is just great! Very well maintained. I suggest a visit to everyone not just kids. It’s small but full of things to explore. I visited it during the 100th-year celebration of Gus the Tortoise. He’s soooo cute! I loved to see him. The staff of the museum is amazing, very friendly and they take really good care of Gus and everything else. The old buddy deserves all the love!
  • Went on a Thursday and it wasn’t too busy. The Body Works exhibit was incredible to see, so interesting. Also great exhibits about marine life, maritime cultural heritage, along with some wildlife. Students get a discount. Quick but sweet.
