Take a closer look at how science and social studies work in the real world through education programs and tours at the Museum of Industry.
The Museum of Industry presents the evolution of work and industry in Nova Scotia from the time of pioneer settlement to the modern computer age. Our exhibits and artifacts provide a unique opportunity for students of all ages to learn how technology and industrialization have affected the lives of Nova Scotia’s workers, and to understand the hopes, opportunities and challenges they have faced.
Our programs incorporate artifacts, gallery exhibits, hands-on components, crafts and activities, and are designed to support the curriculum standards of the Nova Scotia Department of Education. Programs can be adapted to meet the needs of higher grade levels.
An Educator's Guide to the Museum of Industry, and pre-visit materials and activity suggestions accompany e-mail confirmation of programs and tours.
Self-directed and guided tours of the museum are also available year-round.
