The Cape Breton Fossil Discovery Centre offers visitors a unique hands-on learning experience – great for families and school classes!  It features a large collection of plant and animal fossils from Cape Breton and elsewhere – visitors get a first-hand look at the past. It is affiliated with the Sydney Mines Heritage Museum – that tells the story of hundreds of years of coal mining as well as the rich history of steel making.

Culture and Heritage, Geology

The Cape Breton Miners Museum pays tribute to the region’s long and rich history of coal mining. It is home to profound stories of miners and their families, and the resource that helped build a nation. Plan a visit to the Museum where you can join a retired mine guide for an underground mine tour, browse the modern exhibits and stroll through their historic village.
