Walk in the footsteps of Canada’s oldest dinosaurs and explore Nova Scotia’s ancient geologic past.
In the Bay of Fundy the world’s highest tides erode the majestic sea cliffs to reveal half a billion years of geological history. The Fundy coasts contain internationally significant fossils, from tiny Jurassic reptiles and dinosaurs, and 300 million year old footprints of ancient amphibians. The Parrsboro area is also famous for its gems and minerals, including amethyst and agate gem stones.
Visit the Museum’s dynamic exhibit gallery to learn about the area’s Triassic and Jurassic landscapes where Canada’s oldest dinosaurs once roamed.
Peer into the Fossil Research Lab to see Museum staff and volunteers that are cleaning and studying new fossils found in the Bay of Fundy region. Museum staff provide regular talks and guided tours of the gallery displays.
Special outdoor guided tours are also offered to local mineral and fossil sites (days and times vary). See website for more details.
