Kings County Museum

Kings County Museum is housed in the former Kings County Courthouse, which served as Kings County’s seat of justice and municipal government from 1903-1980. Located in Kentville in the Fundy Shore and Annapolis Valley region, the museum provides a collection of cultural and natural history artifacts; archives of Kings County history and genealogy; and a Parks Canada National Commemorative Exhibit to the New England Planters.
