Brief DescriptionMuseum and archives
DescriptionThe Yarmouth County Museum is locatied in a magnificent 12,360 square foot granite-walled church. The setting is unique: a well kept, high-ceilinged building of solid granite, with carpeted flooring throughout. The architecture combines with the superb collections to create a warm intimacy, captivating visitors as they cross the museum's threshold. Nestled within the Collins Heritage Conservation District, a neighbourhood of historically significant Victorian houses near the business district, the museum has drawn thousands of visitors year after year.
The Yarmouth County Museum is well-known internationally for its collection of ship portraits, which is the third largest in Canada. Its costume collection is the third largest in Nova Scotia, and its archives are the largest non-institutional archives in Nova Scotia. Once visitors finish touring our museum, they may drop in next door at the Pelton-Fuller House, the beautiful home of the famous Fuller Brush Man, Alfred Fuller.

Focusing on the life and history of Yarmouth County, visitors will get to emerge themselves in our region's heritage.

Visitors may also take part in our many activities throughout the year, including Escape the Museum (an escape room), teas, massive yard sale, historical presentations, and more.
