The Mulgrave Heritage Centre is located at McNairs Cove in Mulgrave, Nova Scotia. This structure is modeled after the Scotia II train ferry that transported rail cars and passengers from Mulgrave to Cape Breton Island. It houses a visitor information centre, museum, gift shop and a small tea room.
The museum features artifacts and photos from Mulgrave’s days as a Canadian National Railway boom town, fish companies (A. & R. Loggies Co. 1895–1952 and Acadia Fisheries Ltd. 1952–1971), and memorabilia from the First and Second World Wars. The history of the black loyalists, an archival and genealogy section, and information about the building of the Canso Causeway are also available.
