Peering Through Pier 21

Billy Mink Bounces Back Through Halifax’s Great Gateway

The Strength of Samson

Billy Does the Loco-motion at The Nova Scotia Museum Of Industry

In partnership with: Nova Scotia Museum of Industry

Billy's "Maritime Mink" Adventures take him to The Museum Of Industry in Stellarton, Nova Scotia. Joe Otter translates Captain Nemo's poem, giving Billy a clue that leads him into the past. From 1840 to 1889, Samson the steam locomotive hauled coal along the Albion Railway, the second steam railway in Canada. At the Museum of Industry, Billy meets Samson himself, who talks about the wonders of steam power and how industry continues to fuel our world today.

Special note: This MOM (Multimedia Outreach Module) was developed in partnership with the Nova Scotia Museum of Industry. It's part of a Nova Scotia story arc that will also feature episodes created with The Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, and the Atlantic Canada Aviation Museum.
