Museum of Natural Sciences
The Museum of Natural Sciences was made possible by the combined efforts of the
Departments of Biology and Geological Sciences. This museum is designed to outline
evolution throughout geological time, providing an integrated learning environment with
displays of living plants, animals, fossils, rocks and minerals. A working seismograph
is on display in an adjacent hallway.
Located in the John Mitchell Building, the Greystone Theatre presents four main stage plays a year: large-cast plays, plays from the classic repertory and cutting-edge new plays. It is the oldest theatre in the province, started in 1946 in the first drama department in Canada and the Commonwealth.Map
U of S Observatory
The campus observatory provides the public with weekly viewings of our night sky every Saturday night. Admission is free. The observatory houses a three-metre-long refracting telescope with a six-inch-diameter lens. On clear Saturday nights, staff will point the telescope at seasonal objects in the sky. Planets, nebulae, star clusters, galaxies and even comets can be viewed at the right times of the year. On cloudy nights, staff present an educational slideshow depicting objects in our solar system, galaxy and beyond.Map
