What to See & Do

Adventures Guaranteed Every Day at Sherbrooke Village

Sherbrooke Village is Nova Scotia’s largest Provincial Museum situated on 53 acres along the St Mary’s River – jewel of the Eastern Shore.

In the 1860s, timber, tall ships and gold ruled life along the St. Mary’s River, turning the community of Sherbrooke into a prosperous boom town. Today, the picturesque village still stands proud with over 80 heritage structures and 25 buildings with restored period interiors.

At Sherbrooke Village, every day is a trip back in time as Nova Scotia’s 19th century heritage is brought to life by costumed interpreters, including blacksmiths, potters, weavers, wood turners and printers. Get dressed up Vicrorian finery as part of the Explorer Program and become a part of the Village story. Try your hand at a heritage craft or have your picture taken at Canada’s only Ambrotype photo studio. Our activities, learning camps and workshops for people of all ages, and schedule of special events make it easy to get your hands on history all summer long!
