Fodor's Review

This is the place to learn about fossils and dinosaurs, as well as the flora and fauna prevalent in Nova Scotia today. The Nature Centre is home to live snakes, frogs, insects, and other creatures. The museum also hosts major traveling exhibits as well as nature talks, walks, and workshops that appeal to all interests and ages. Returning visitors might miss the massive fiberglass model of a northern spring peeper (a frog) that once clung to the building's southeastern

side—not gone, it has been moved indoors.
