Sherbrooke Nova Scotia

Visit Sherbrooke Village Museum

Every day is a trip back in time as Nova Scotia’s 19th century heritage is brought to life for visitors of all ages by costumed interpreters in 25 original heritage buildings including blacksmiths, potters, weavers and printers. Come back in time to the boom years when shipbuilding, lumbering, and gold mining dominated the local economy. You are invited to “Step into 1867” each day during summer months at Sherbrooke Village for a Victorian experience. Dress in period costume, or immerse yourself even further by taking on one of a variety of characters available for the day. Our activities, learning camps, weekly concerts and schedule of special events make it easy to get your hands-on history all summer long!

Open June 9 to September 22 from 9:30 am to 5 pm, with extended offers from Victoria Day to Thanksgiving. Visit us 45 minutes south of Antigonish at exit 32, on Highway #7. Join us on facebook for regular updates or call 1-888-743-7845.
