Yarmouth Nova Scotia Museum

Previous Entry
NameYarmouth County Museum and Archives
Address22 Collins St
Yarmouth, NS B5A 3C8
Brief DescriptionMuseum & archives focusing on the history of Yarmouth County
DescriptionOur museum has the third largest collection of ship portraits in all of Canada and the largest community archives in Nova Scotia. The original Fresnel lens used at the Cape Forchu Lighthouse is displayed in the centre of our museum's main gallery. We have two stagecoaches in our museum, including a locally-built example and a well-preserved Concord stagecoach, both used for service between Yarmouth and Tusket, Nova Scotia in the mid-1800s. A special display evoking the bridge of the MV Bluenose features the wheel, compass, telegraph and bell from the long-running Yarmouth ferry.

The museum houses the mysterious Yarmouth Runic Stone, one of the best-known items of Yarmouth's history, although its actual status as a Norse artifact is very much in dispute.

Our sprawling museum also boasts artifacts from the Acadians, early English settlers, Mi'kmaq and African Nova Scotian community. Don't miss the taxidermy and creepy doll room in the basement!
