Nova Scotia natural resources supported a variety of industries – coal mines, steel mills, lobster canneries, paper mills, cotton mills and glass factories. Many of the companies are no longer in business due to dwindling resources and competition from other countries but the museum allows visitors to view the types of machinery and equipment used and to also get a glimpse into the lives of the workers and their families.
There are 27 museums that are part of the Nova Scotia Museum. They’re located all over the province and include historic houses, old mills and living history villages. If you’ll be visiting the museums you may want to buy a pass which is good for unlimited visits for one year to all 27. Pass
The museum is accessible but some of the hands-on exhibits can not be experienced by visitors using wheelchairs. The Shopmobile exhibit has steps but no ramp.
