The Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame is pleased to partner with the Museum of Industry in order to host a section of a traveling exhibit on gold in Nova Scotia. Visit the NS Sport Hall of Fame in the Halifax Metro Centre and discover the role that gold has played in Nova Scotia’s rich sport heritage. Gold in Society: Gold as Reward will be installed in the Hall of Fame gallery until the end of August, and, as always, admission is free.
The full traveling exhibit, titled Gold: A Nova Scotia Treasure, opened in Stellarton at the Museum of Industry in November 2012, and the section featuring Nova Scotians who have won gold for achievement in sport arrived at the Hall of Fame on June 9. The sampling of medals represents Hall of Famers and Nova Scotia sport heroes who have claimed undisputed first place, and their stories are presented in a beautiful bilingual exhibit.
The Hall of Fame has also created a gold-themed scavenger hunt that ties the gold exhibit into the rest of the gallery exhibits and the Hall’s other “golden” artifacts. This activity will be available at the visitor information desk for the rest of the summer.
