Visit the Glooscap Heritage Centre and Mi’kmaq Museum in Millbrook (Highway 102, Exit 13A) in the Fundy Shore and Annapolis Valley region, which celebrates the area’s Mi’kmaq heritage and Glooscap legends. Glooscap, an Abenaki word for “man from nothing” was the first human, created out of a bolt of lightning in the sand, and remains a great figure that appear in many of the Mi’kmaq myths. The Centre offers an innovative multimedia presentation of the rich history of the Mi’kmaw people, as Glooscap guides you through their trials, tribulations and triumphs. Exhibits include ancient artifacts; stunning quillwork and beadwork; and a giant statue of the legendary Glooscap. The Centre also offers a visitor information centre and gift shop with an Aboriginal focus. The Glooscap Heritage Centre is a Bay of Fundy Recommended Experience. Bus tours are welcome.
