What a great experience touring this museum! We spent about 3 hours going through all of the exhibits and all of the staff were so friendly and helpful. You can easily see how proud they are to work there and how much they want to share this part of history. Paul did a presentation of the machine shop which included running each of the machines. He is very knowledgeable and so eager to answer all of our questions. Thank you for an interesting and enlightening afternoon.

We did this while on a boat cruise and it was a highlight of the trip. Had no idea of all the great things made in Nova Scotia. Museum is very well organized from coal mining history to many modern activities on going today. Great staff and free 'oat cakes' Do not miss this one! 1

I wouldn’t have known about this fine museum except I was staying at a nearby hotel in Stellarton. I was very impressed by the clearly and colourfully told stories of the development of industry in Nova Scotia and the uncrowded layout. The early train on display is impressive and there are all sorts of interactive exhibits suitable for both children and adults. I hope to get back again as I didn’t get to see the mining exhibit.

Recently spent a fascinating few hours here, in a huge purpose built complex, made to fit in with this area's history if heavy industry. From the massive lobby, and on through a couple of acres of well designed, laid out, and labelled exhibits, we were treated to an interesting and understandable history of industry in Nova Scotia complete with thousands of artifacts, and many, many interactive displays for kids of all ages to fiddle with. From the dawn of the industrial age, to the space age and the digital world of today, this information is in the form of a tale well told, and makes learning fun. One can't help but be impressed and as a Bluenoser, proud, of this museum, and of what our little province has accomplished! A lot of walking to see it all, but the whole place is accessible, well lit, and all signage, bilingual of course, is legible and clearly written. We two seniors felt we had done it justice in 2 hours, but this place would be fascinating for kids, so maybe allow at least half a day.

A hidden gem for sure! Allow at least 2 hours+ to see and read everything! Very little interactive for kids though but full of interesting facts and wonderful history of the region. Room after room, display after display it just kept going and going. Very organized and staff very knowledgeable and very very clean.
