This is not a large museum but does offer some interesting displays of local culture on a rotating basis. The person in the office is usually available to assist with any inquiries about local history. If you are tracing back your local family history, this is the place to visit as they have an amazing collection of genealogical items with... More

I took my nieces to see this museum. There are a variety of small exhibits with hands on activities in some of them which is nice for the kids. They currently have a history of underwear exhibit on which the girls found quite funny. You can accept a tour and the guide will show you through the rooms pointing out... More

The Kings County Museum is conveniently located in downtown Kentville. With both its permanent and temporary exhibits, it give locals and visitors alike a great sampling of the local history of Kentville and the surrounding area. The building once housed the local courthouse and the main room on the top floor of this museum still reflects that history, with a... More

I had told them in advance what my research would be but they were very nice when we arrived but had done no preparation. The information they had wasn't new to me so I ended up giving them what I had. They were very nice people.

They have a very good exhibit of Nova Scotia glass here. The place is kept well and the volunteers are very friendly. we saw the new exhibit on CDN Snipers of WWII and the Court Room up Stairs is very interesting.

If you are starting a visit to the Annapolis Valley this is a good place to start with. The museum has a display in several rooms of an old courthouse that display the history of this valley. The displays will allow you to put many of the things you will see as a tourist into a historical context as you... More

This museum is located in a classic, preserved courthouse. The beautifully restored courtroom is like something out of “To Kill a Mockingbird”. You can just imagine the tense small-town murder trials there. Look for the animal figures hidden in the hand painted wood grain. There are some good local history exhibits and a nationally sponsored exhibit on the New England... More
