The Museum of Natural History in Halifax will be closed to the public on Monday, Aug. 25, in preparation for the new permanent exhibit about Sable Island.
Sable Island: Over the Dunes, Beyond Wild Horses opens on Oct.
8. The museum’s sprinkler system requires upgrades as part of the exhibit’s construction.
“There is a certain mystery and excitement about Sable Island that gives Nova Scotians a lot to look forward to this October,” said Jeff Gray, marketing curator. “Closing the museum for the day will allow the work to be carried out in the safest way possible for visitors, and will make it easier to protect the museum’s collections and exhibitions.”
The upgrades include the installation of a sprinkler pipe and additional sprinkler heads.
The photography exhibit Roberto Dutesco: The Wild Horses of Sable Island runs until Oct. 13. For more information, go to naturalhistory.novascotia.ca.
