Science on a Sphere

Science on a Sphere®, a tool by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), is educating, entertaining and visually stimulating. Researchers at NOAA developed it to help explain Earth system science to people of all ages. Animated images, ranging from space to ocean temperatures and more, can be seen on this interactive sphere.

Museum of Natural History

What’s bigger, you or a blue whale’s rib bone? Can you tell the difference between a drone bee and a worker bee? How old do you think Gus the tortoise is?

Discover the answer to these questions and more as you explore the wonders of Nova Scotia’s land and sea at the Museum of Natural History. See ancient fossils, glittering gold, stunning Mi’kmaq artifacts, sea creatures from an ocean tide pool, deadly mushrooms, frogs and snakes and whale skeletons. From an eagle’s nest to the ocean floor, there’s something for everyone.

Please note

As of July 31, 2019, the Nova Scotia Museum will no longer be accepting Tick Enquiries. If you have any specific concerns about Lyme disease, please contact your doctor.
