Located inland from the Lighthouse Trail on the South Shore of Nova Scotia, this museum has a wealth of local heritage to share with you. Take a walk through our Museum to see how the ancestors of our communities lived. From the Country Store to the Library to the Cobbler's Shop, we show how the people of yesteryear survived and flourished. Enjoy a leisurely stroll through our heritage gardens.
