New Archival Collections!

We have been busy processing more archival collections this winter thanks to funding from the Provincial Archival Development Program. View our list of archival collections and see the NEW items listed here: https://mahonebaymuseum.com/archival-collection/

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.

We are recruiting for various full-time, summer staff positions for this summer (2022) between 8 and 16 weeks long that we are have applied for funding from Young Canada Works, Canada Summer Jobs, and NS Skills. Each grant has slightly different requirements but generally look to help us employ 15 to 30 year old youth for the summer. Interest in history, museums, or other heritage organizations is an asset. No experience necessary!

For more information about how to apply by email, the requirements, and the possible positions we are hoping to fill, please visit: https://mahonebaymuseum.com/download/5521/
