1834 Mastodon Femur

The Mastodon femur recently put back on display, here, at the Museum of Natural History, was found in Middle River, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. This bone has a big history! 

This Is What I Wish You Knew

Presented in partnership with the Mi’kmaw Native Friendship Center in Halifax

Through these fourteen tiles, the artists share the challenges and diverse experiences of the Mi’kmaw community throughout our region. We invite you to enjoy the beauty of the tiles and listen as the artists reveal how their personal journeys are reflected in these works of art.

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?

See ancient fossils, glittering gold, stunning Mi’kmaq artifacts, sea creatures from an ocean tide pool, deadly mushrooms, frogs and snakes and whale skeletons.
