Fascinating to see how our ancestors may have lived a hundred years ago. The old equipment on display is a reminder that necessity and function do not always have to be complicated. Have been here several years back and still enjoyed the experience. The animals are great especially the use of oxen in farm work. The staff dressed in period costume and performing tasks which are no longer everyday - is a great lesson for anyone. Would be a great place to bring the grand-children.

In Oct 2019 we visited Ross Farm Museum, particularly due to its connection with the History Channel's "The Curse of Oak Island" and the numerous visits made to the farm to date objects found on Oak Island. Unfortunately the "go to" person at the Blacksmith Shop was on a lunch break when we arrived. However we spent a lot of time chatting with the barrel maker; very interesting. The entire property - being a living history museum - is very impressive. We took the wagon ride, visited the different buildings, viewed the exhibits when we first entered and overall had an enjoyable few hours. Being autumn, the gardens and fields were dormant but we expected that. It's a definite must-see when you're in the area!!

We didn't realize it before going but the museum is having their family days over Labour day weekend. We got to write with a quill, pull taffy, stamp leather, and milk a cow. The staff are always engaging and informative. They are wonderful with children and make a strong effort to get them involved. We have a pass to Nova Scotia Museums so we went a few times this summer. The great thing is, since it's a working farm, even if you return a couple days later, there will be something different.

I have for years wanted to visit the Ross Farm Museum, and on a two week trip to Nova Scotia and PEI, it finally happened. It was well worth the time and effort to visit. First of all I had a real interest in their use of oxen and draft horses, especially being used on the farm. I was also interested in seeing their blacksmith shop and location where they do actual ox shoeing. Furthermore, I was pleased to meet their ox teamster and other interpreters and hear first hand how things work at the farm. The quality of the grounds, the animals, the buildings and exhibits were all well worth the effort to visit the facility.
