FORCE is open to the public. Admission is free.

The FORCE visitor centre overlooks the technology test site in the Minas Passage, Bay of Fundy.

The approximately 3,000-square foot facility houses interpretive exhibits, interactive displays, a small theatre/community room, as well as space for onsite meetings and research work. When available our community room is a space for non-profit organizations and charities to gather and let the beauty of the Minas Passage spark creativity.

The modular building’s sustainable features include passive solar heat gain in winter, high performance glazing and solar shading to help cooling in summer, and storm water drainage and control.
