The Mahone Bay Museum is closed for the winter to allow us to work on processing our archival backlog. We will re-open in May 2018. Follow us on Facebook to see updates about our archival work.

Please contact us if you would like us to try to arrange a visit by appointment.

Located in the heart of beautiful downtown Mahone Bay, the Mahone Bay Museum is a community museum led by a Board of dedicated volunteers and a small staff. The Mahone Bay Founders Society is our parent organization, a membership based, registered charity.


What We Do


The Museum provides visitors and locals alike with an in-depth understanding of our community’s heritage.

Although closed to the public in the winter months, we are never dormant. Each year we feature new displays, so all winter long our hard-working volunteers are busy preparing and organizing the displays for the next season.
