This Is What I Wish You Knew is an exhibit featuring a selection of tiles created by members of the urban aboriginal community in Halifax.  We invite you to enjoy the beauty of the tiles and learn how the history of Nova Scotia’s Mi’kmaw community is reflected in the personal journeys of the artists and their works of art.

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.
