Exploring the history of mankind allows us to see how we have evolved as a species and archaeology is one tool that helps unlock the secrets of the past. The Archaeology Gallery here at the museum, allows visitors to experience the rich cultural history of Nova Scotia by examining early artifacts of the Mi'kmaq and Acadians as well as the history of Halifax and how people lived.

Here you'll find examples of early tools, nails, arrowheads and pottery. This permanent gallery gives people the opportunity to learn more about Nova Scotia's past.
