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 continue to be open by appointment by donation on weekdays. Please note that we will do our best to accommodate appointment requests but that we will need at least 24 hours notice in order to request for two available staff members to be on-site.
Arranging an appointment is best done by Facebook messaging us https://www.facebook.com/MahoneBayMuseum/
or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org with “Appointment to Visit” in the subject line.
If would prefer to request a virtual tour of the Museum by donation, please contact us!
Our written plan outlining our Covid procedures will be sent to those requesting an appointment to visit for their review to confirm that they will follow our procedures. This plan includes wearing masks correctly (covering both your nose and mouth) while you are in the Museum, having visitors and staff maintain their distance from each other, and using our anti-bacterial hand soap or our fragrance free hand sanitizer when entering the Museum. We also purchased a fragrance free disinfectant cleaner that will be used regularly on high touch surfaces.
Location: 578 Main Street, Mahone Bay, NS B0J 2E0
Mailing Address: PO Box 583, Mahone Bay, NS B0J 2E0
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.
