Great time!
Sep. 2021 • Couples
We had a great time here this past weekend. Everything is so well preserved and we loved that it was so hands on unlike most places that are full of "Do not touch" signs.
Great lunch at the Cook house as well, you won't leave hungry thats for sure !

SUPER-EXCELLENT JUST LIKE THE OLD DAYS
Sep. 2021
This place is a Super-Excellent place to visit. It is wonderful to be back in the old days at this Museum. The entire area was great. When I visited the old school, I was getting ready to ask the teacher if she was ready to have the blackboard cleaned.

To everyone visiting the Clam Harbour and Lake Charlotte area of Nova Scotia, this is a must-visit place.

Back in time
Nov. 2019
Memory Lane is a late 40's early 50's Eastern Shore fishing village reconstruction. It has an old time General Store where you enter, they also have items for sale. They have a typical 1 room school house with it's own outhouse, they also have a church. There is a farmhouse, that every time I've been there smells like ginger cookies. They house has decorations from the period, music playing is also time appropriate, they also have an old switchboard that would have been inn use in a small village like this. There is a fisherman's shack with nets and tools that he would have. There are a couple of gas pumps, an old car( not sure of the make). They also do special events for Mother's day, Father's Day, Canada Day and other events. It i9s about 45 minutes from Halifax.

A Step Back in Time
Sep. 2019
This is like stepping back to the early 20th century. Various buildings...school house, church, gas station. Very well done. Items from the era are on display. Lunch is available. Brought back many memories from childhood.

Great find
Sep. 2019
Stopped here on our way to the airport and needed to kill some time. A little gem, not a huge site, but lots of interesting items from the 1940's.
All well displayed, and hands on, so you can get in the cars, play the organ in the church.

A great find!
Jun. 2019
It is inexpensive to gain access and we spent about 3 hours here, reminiscing all the old days of our childhood. They also serve lunch should one be hungry. I would return again to stroll through memory lane.

Called into the Village on our way to the airport and would have loved to have stayed longer. Its well laid out and really takes you back to the 1940's.

A little-known gem!
Jul. 2019 • Family
My daughter found this on a list of day trips from Halifax. As a history lover, she was keen to go. What a delightful treat! As soon as we stepped into the general store and saw the goods and wartime posters, we were hooked. What’s especially wonderful is the ability to touch and try so many items. The buildings were not staffed individually, giving visitors the chance to spend as much or as little time as they want to poke about and explore. Our family highly recommends Memory Lane. You could spend as little as an hour if you just want to stop into each building, or as much as three hours if you want to touch, try and linger.

We're so glad you found us! Part of what makes our museum different is exactly that ability to touch and handle the objects and artifacts as you explore the Heritage Village. It's a big part of the feeling that you're "taking a stroll back in time." Thank you for taking the time to write a review! We hope you'll visit us again soon.
