Mi’kmag Heritage Centre

You must visit the Glooscap Heritage Centre and Mi’kmaw Museum to gaze at the 40-foot statue of Glooscap and to learn about the Mi’kmaw – the Aboriginal group of Nova Scotia. The Glooscap Heritage Centre, located next to Truro, Nova Scotia, is dedicated to the celebration of Mi’kmaw heritage. The Centre also has a modern Visitor Information Centre and a Gift Shop with a First Nation focus.
