Hours & Location


We will be OPEN during Father Christmas Festival with free children’s activities. Nov 24th & 25th and Dec 1st & 2nd from 10am to 4pm!

We’ll also be hosting Gingerbread Decorating at the Mahone Bay Centre. See more info below.

Our Fall Hours of Operation end on Oct 7th, 2018.

As of October 7th, we will only open by appointment (by donation) during the winter months, as long as a volunteer is available, so that you can still:
• view our exhibits,
• receive a tour of our Museum,
• conduct research in our Research Room,
• and/or enjoy our children’s activities with your family or school group

Please give us at least 48 hours notice if you’d like to request that we open by appointment.

Street Address:
578 Main Street

Parking is available on the Main Street in front of the Museum. A few additional parking spots are available for museum visitors at the back of the Museum.

Accessibility is an issue for this historical property. We provide a ramp at our back door that allows for most wheelchairs and people who struggle with the stairs at our front entrance to enter the museum. However, some of our doorways are very small in other parts of the museum and this limits access for many wheelchairs. Interpreter staff are happy to inform you about the information in these limited areas and we apologize for the inconvenience.
