Welcome Wednesdays

10 am to 12 noon, weekly

Small Craft Gallery

We are pleased to invite young families, daycares, and newcomers to the museum every Wednesday morning for a chance to explore our space and have fun!

Drop-in and unlock your creativity and imagination with our puppet theatre, various toys and colouring sheets. Enjoy our themed story times and crafts, with different monthly themes! If you’re wanting to enjoy reading with more quiet time, we have a selection of books offered in English and other languages for young readers. Our self and staff guided activities vary each week.

Contact our reception at (902) 424-7491 for more details, or if you are a daycare planning to make a visit, call in advance to reserve your group (so we can prepare for your arrival!).

Our museum is always free for children five years and under and we welcome daycares and their teachers to come!
