Every Object Tells a Story

Bruce Museum's Permanent Science Galleries will be closing February 2, 2020, for a complete renovation and reinvention. 

The objects in this gallery (meteorite, American Bald Eagle, stone ax head, meadowlark nest, dinosaur egg, quartz amethyst, trilobite, horseshoe crab, red fox, Native American basket and a painting of Cos Cob harbor) highlight some of the themes introduced throughout the exhibition Changes in Our Land.

Together they reveal the interdependence of the living and non-living resources of our land. Individually they each have their own ecological story to tell. The environment in which we live results from the interweaving of these stories, from the continuity of Earth's cycles and from the changes that have occurred and are occurring over time.
