Canada 150 Exhibit

June 1 - December 16

150 poster open

If we could see beneath the forest floor, we would see that all the trees, the pine, the birch, maple and so on, are holding hands, regardless of species. We as people, regardless of race, must come together and hold hands and help each     other. We must listen to our Mother Earth. She is sending us a message.


–Mi’kmaq Elder and Spiritual Leader
Chief Charlie Labrador, 1932-2002

“Canada 150 Exhibit” Explore an exhibit which doesn’t shy away from some controversial sides of Confederation including, “To Join or Not to Join: The Maritime Voice Against Confederation,” or explore what we cherish about being Canadian through the lens of local photographers as they document the travels of the Canada 150 Chair.  You can follow the travels of the tiny chair on Canada150chair.ca. The Mi’kmaq are First Nations People in Eastern Canada and in this exhibit we offer beautiful examples of their craft of basket making. In August the Heritage Trust  exhibit  “Witness to a New Nation” will be joining us . You are invited to our Canada 150 Exhibit open house on July 17th from 7pm until 8pm here at the museum, 37 Cornwallis Street in  Kentville, Nova Scotia
