The Mahone Bay Museum

In 2014, the museum received a Strategic Development Initiative grant from the Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage. This grant allowed the museum to hire a professional to develop a formal interpretive plan and oversee a rebranding initiative.

The museum facilitated three community consultations in January, 2015 and asked local residents to identify which local stories and subjects are important to the community. A formal interpretive plan was developed based on the information gathered from these consultations and the findings of a community engagement initiative in 2011.

In order to be representative of many community stories, the museum’s name will now be the Mahone Bay Museum. This new name is intended to represent the museum’s primary purpose of preserving and sharing the many stories, past and present, of Mahone Bay and area.
