Fodor's Expert Review Fundy Geological Museum

Parrsboro Museum/Gallery

Not far from the Minas Basin, where some of the oldest dinosaur fossils in Canada have been found, this museum showcases 200-million-year-old specimens alongside other mineral, plant, and animal relics. The opportunity to peer into a working geology lab and to see bright new interactive exhibits (like the Bay of Fundy Time Machine) give this museum real kid appeal. On Fridays and Saturdays in July and August, the curator leads fascinating two- to four-hour field trips through the surrounding area, but you need your own transportation because most don't start at the museum.
