“One of Canada’s comprehensive industrial museums”

You might be surprised to know that the Museum of Industry is not about rusting hunks of metal and complicated explanations of how things were made. Our visitors connect with the stories of people just like their grandparents and parents who worked hard, faced tough times, and used tools and machines to increase the prosperity of companies, their communities, and sometimes even themselves. Take a journey through Nova Scotia’s past to discover how different work and working conditions used to be, how technological advancements changed how we worked and what was made, and removed workplace hazards or created new ones. Find out what happened in Nova Scotia, where an abundance of coal, the fuel of the Industrial Age, powered a province. One of Canada’s few comprehensive industrial museums, the Nova Scotia Museum of Industry tells the story of work and workers. Here you will find technology, steam engines and locomotives, cars and coal mining. Children will love the hands-on fun, the trains, and the demos. Find the true meaning of “made in Nova Scotia” at the Museum of Industry.
