Great place for kids of to day to see how class rooms used to be when their grandparents went to school. They also do research of family history. I had gone to the new library to get... More

We visited this real schoolhouse with our children, and they found it fascinating to see how school was conducted in an earlier time. This is a school that was moved from Digby County, and is now outfitted with authentic period furnishings of a school. It was like being in the class of 1860, as the "schoolmaster" explained how things were... More

We dropped in here while hubby napped from a long plane ride and because it was across the street from our hotel. Very nice and well laid out. Guide was very informative but also left us alone to look at all the items on display. Well done!

I loved the museum as it shows how they went to school many years ago. They also show the fact that the teachers where stricter back then not like todays practices

I learned quite a bit about schoolhouse life from this little museum. It's interesting to see the social changes in how we view a teachers position theses days. I love history and this museum has some interesting stories to share. Good place to take kids so they can see the difference in "then and now", without it being too big,... More

Fantastic! There is so much to see. And, in the basement, are all the old school textbooks from back in the 50's. I could have stayed there for hours and hours.

We stopped in at this Schoolhouse Museum and they happened to have an event going on, which was very nice. They had ice cream cones for 5 cents and inside a woman was making ice cream the old fashioned way and had visitors helping. The items inside the Schoolhouse were very interesting and it was done very well to get... More

My husband and I along with our daughters, aged 3 and 5 stopped to visit the little white school house on the afternoon of July 30th. We walked into the one room school house and had approximately 2 minutes to view all of the interesting antiques and artifacts before leaving with a scared and crying child. My daughter is beginning... More
