With the drizzle falling on Canada Day decide to have a look in here and were pleasantly surprised. Lots of interesting local history and information especially on the early European arrivals to MB.

This museum was very informative when it came to the history of Mahone Bay. It is quite a small museum but the information is interesting and the staff is very helpful! It is free to go through but they appreciate donations!

A quick visit to this little museum is absolutely worth it. The young woman at the desk eagerly gave us a little tour and explained the history of the area in an engaging manner. Go and learn about a beautiful part of Canada.

The museum is full of interesting stories and pictures about the development of Mahone Bay and the area, but I came in late September and caught them in the midst of closing. Worth a visit if you come between May - late September
