We created Mahone Bay Oral History Interview Videos!

Special thanks to the Government of Canada and their 150 Forward Fund that partially sponsored this project as part of Canada’s 150th celebrations.

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.
