The Basics

Highlights of the museum include exhibits on ancient Mi’kmaq tools and crafts, an interactive audio panel that teaches you to say hello and goodbye in the Mi’kmaq language, and a boulder inscribed with Mi’kmaq petroglyphs. At the museum’s entrance you’ll find a 40-foot (12-meter) statue of Glooscap—a legendary Mi’kmaq figure who is said to have been the first human on earth, created by a bolt of lightning in the sand.
