STELLARTON – People can take advantage of exciting March break activities at Nova Scotia Museum sites with pirates, sea creatures, bugs and Jack the Kangaroo at various locations.

The Museum of Industry in Stellarton is giving visitors a chance to swim beneath the waves with Sea Creatures. Kids can imagine they are spending a day at the beach, touch common sea animals from Nova Scotia's shores, paint a scene on a shell, or learn to fold an origami fish.

People are invited to dress as their favourite pirate, mermaid, sponge or sea monster for a chance to win a prize. The Seaside Fashion Show will be at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. each day from March 8 to 16.

Visitors who are brave enough can have their picture taken in the tentacles of a giant sea monster, the Kraken. The Museum of Industry's popular plasma cars will be back too.

"This March break is an excellent opportunity for families to visit the museums and learn about true stories and myths of the past, and interesting creatures from around the world," said Communities, Culture and Heritage Minister Tony Ince. "The amazing teams at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, the Museum of Natural History and the Museum of Industry are committed to providing a fun and educational experience during March break, especially for young people."

Visit for a full schedule of events planned.
