The Mahone Bay Museum also houses the Inglis/Quinlan collection, which is on loan to us from the Nova Scotia Museum. Percy Wellington Inglis was a ceramics collector who lived in Mahone Bay. His collection was passed on to his niece, Clara Quinlan, before it was acquired by the Nova Scotia Museum in 1986.  Click here to view photographs of the Inglis/Quinlan collection.
