Age of the Mastodon Official Opening

November 20, 2023

Come join us for the grand opening of the Age of the Mastodon, a travelling exhibit from the Museum of Natural History. Mastodons were one of the largest mammals of the ice age and for many years, they called Nova Scotia their home! This exhibit features a real Mastodon femur discovered in Middle River in 1832 by an Alexander McRae. This will be the first time in 190 years the femur is on display in Cape Breton. Other features include a full-size mastodon cast and artifacts discovered at the Milford Gypsum Quarry in 1991. 

The official opening will take place on Monday, November 20th from 1 to 4 pm.  There will be cake, hot chocolate, and cider. Free admission.
