Thirty years ago, the people of North Sydney, Nova Scotia built a heritage museum because they wanted some place to put all of their artifacts and paper documents.
They have just recently renovated the place, and now they have a number of exhibitions on display. These exhibits centre around immigration, transportation, the military and communication.
They are also planning to have a number of speakers come to the museum this summer, and one of them will be Joan Dawson who has written A History of Nova Scotia in 50 Objects. She will appear on Monday the 25 of May from 7-8 p.m.
She has also authored Mapmaker's Legacy, Nova Scotia's Lost Highways, and Nova Scotia's Historic Rivers.
The website is http://www.northsydneymuseum.ca/index.html
