This Natural History Museum is quite small compared to others I have visited but the displays were well done, The highlight was seeing children preparing for feeding the turtle.
Recently we attended at the Museum of Natural History on Summer Street, Halifax, and were very impressed with the many live exhibits as well as the stuffed animals and the information pertaining to all exhibits. The exhibits of the indigenous peoples showing the areas of Nova Scotia where they were found was very interesting. It can take up to 2... 更多
Unfortunately the large building seemed very empty considering it's size. We listened to a short talk on the planets and looked at cages of stuffed animals. The lions and tigers weren't what you expect in a Nova Scotia museum. Gus the ninety year old tortoise lives in a tank in the entrance and there were small tanks of frogs and... 更多
This was my fist time here. I guess I could say I was expecting more than we got. Staff was no place to be seen for a question unless you wanted to go back to the cashier at the entrance. Many exhibits of live creatures had no species listed on them. You had to guess and still don't know if... 更多
The museum has many stuffed animals and few live ones. The live frogs and snakes are interesting but there are no signs or information about them. There are interesting exhibits but it could be so much more.
This museum is not very large but it has some very interesting things to explore. Gus their resident tortoise is something to definitely go see. The staff is friendly and there are lots of things to see. There were many children there and they looking like they were having a lot of fun.
This is a small museum with friendly staff which has exhibits mainly aimed at children. A mix of live animals and stuffed ones which engages the interest ( not sure why there was a big exhibit about Lions but it was interesting !) Enjoyed the exhibits about the indigenous peoples and first european settlers and also Gus the 90 year... 更多
Although the building looks large from the outside, most of the displays are on one floor. Two hours would give you lots of time to see it all. We learned a lot from the lion display (which is a temporary exhibit this summer). Gus the tortoise goes for his daily walk near closing time, so that is a good reason... 更多
Although smaller than I expected, at $5 per person this was great. It covers a lot of different things including geology and biology of the area. My 11 year thought it was quite interesting. For the price, it is a great place to visit.
This was another place we took the kids, same day as the Discovery Centre. It had great animals and displays but unless the kids are really interested in stuffed animals....It was a very quick trip...I was disappointed it did not last longer....If you are going from attraction to attraction it is a little out of the way from the downtown... 更多
