    The Fundy Geological Museum opened in 1993, welcoming more than 300,000 visitors to this outstanding geological museum in Nova Scotia and part of their museum system, housing exhibits of fossils of the plateosaurus engelhardti and prosauropod dinosaur, as well as local minerals and an explanation of the Bay of Fundy tides. Their museum gift shop is a great place to pick up some great souvenirs, and there is a laboratory where researchers are uncovering the skeleton of a 200 million year old prosauropod dinosaur. The museum hosts the province's Gem and Mineral show each year that is in its 45th year and showcases some of the oldest dinosaur bones in the nation. You will have an opportunity to meet the world's first reptiles, huge dragonflies, early dinosaurs and more.

    Fort Edward National Historic SiteFort Edward National Historic Site Coldbrook, Canada
    Fort Edward is now a national historic site in Nova Scotia, Canada and was constructed in Father LeLoutre's War, and to assist in preventing the Acadian exodus from the island, but is most famous for its part in the Expulsion of the Acadians in 1755 and in protecting Halifax from a land assault in the American Revolution. Quite a bit of it would be burned down in 1922, the blockhouse that still stands is one of the oldest in North America, with a cairn later added. Although the British would conquer Acadia in 1710, Nova Scotia would continue to be occupied by the Catholic Acadians and Mi'kmaq Indians; and Father Le Loutre's War started when Edward Cornwallis came to establish Halifax in 1749 with 13 transports. By building Halifax, the British violated the earlier treaties that they had signed with the Mi'kmaq nation in 1726 that had been signed after Dummer's War. The English would begin building other settlements around the island, and to guard against Mi'kmaq, French or Acadian attacks on the new protestant settlements, the British would construct a fort in Halifax, taking full control of the peninsula. Fort Edward would become the site of the Acadian church for the parish of l'Assomption in 1722, and after failing to take control of the settlements of Chignecto, Major Charles Lawrence would order his New England rangers to take control of Pisquid, as it was called back then, by encouraging the Acadians to burn down their church so Fort Edward could be constructed on its site in 1750. Hoping to accomplish this, the rangers would engage the Mi'kmaqs at the Battle of St. Croix in the same year. The fort would be named after Cornwallis since he established Halifax, Nova Scotia. It would play a further significant role in the Bay of Fundy Campaign in 1755 that began the Acadian Expulsion, while the British jailed those Acadians in the church at Grand Pre, as well as jailing 183 Acadian men in Fort Edward until they could be deported. The fort would be involved in the French and Indian War, the American Revolution, the War of 1812, and WWI.
