What’s new?

The Mahone Bay Museum, a small community museum created by the registered non-profit charity known as the Mahone Bay Founders Society, protects and provides on-site and online access to the history of the Mahone Bay area to save it from becoming forgotten or lost for the benefit of future generations.

As of June 26, 2021, we are now open on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 4pm for a maximum of 10 visitors at one time. Masks are mandatory and we ask that you sanitize your hands upon entry. If you have any Covid like symptoms, please stay home.

We are open by appointment by donation on weekdays. Please note that we will do our best to accommodate appointment requests: call us at 624-6263, message us on Facebook @mahonebaymuseum, or email us at info@mahonebaymuseum.com
