The Yarmouth County Museum
An award-winning museum with over 20,000 artifacts that document Yarmouth County's heritage, in a historic former church.
Nestled within a neighbourhood of historically significant Victorian houses, the museum draws thousands of visitors every year. See a lighthouse lens that weighs 3,300 pounds, a stone that may have been engraved by Vikings, and extensive displays on Yarmouth's shipping history!
Owned/operated by the Yarmouth County Historical Society.
The Yarmouth County Archives
We are the largest non-institutional archives in Nova Scotia, with roughly 25,000 photographs, newspapers dating back to 1833, extensive genealogical records, and a research library.
The Mast Head Gift Shop
We offer a selection of local and Nova Scotian items, which include a large selection of gift items and collectables. Books in the shop showcase local history and culture, from shipwrecks and lighthouses, to mystery stories and photographs.
