The Age of Sail Museum
The Age of Sail Heritage Museum overlooks the tidal Greville River, paying tribute to the heritage of the communities along Nova Scotia’s unforgettable Minas Channel. Through pictures, videos, storytelling, models, artifacts and hands-on exhibits, the museum brings to life the history of shipbuilding, lumbering and the lives of the local communities.
The area boasts a rich history from the time of the dinosaurs to the Mi’kmaq and Acadians to loyalists and shipbuilders all the way to the present day. The heritage center hosts a museum in an 1854 church, a local blacksmith shop from the Wagstaff and Hatfield shipyard, as well as the Port Greville Lighthouse circa 1908 and a boathouse.
A vast collection of genealogical and research material is available to the general public for their benefit. The Age of Sail Museum is definitely a “must see” stop while in the Parrsboro region.
