Wallace Area Museum

Wallace Area Museum located 2 km /1.5 mi west of Wallace in the Northumberland Shore region is the restored home (c 1839) of local shipbuilder James Davison. The picturesque village of Wallace boasts a diverse cultural heritage: first a Mi'kmaq settlement, then an Acadian village and, in 1784, a land grant for over 460 United Empire Loyalists. It has remnants of Mi’kmaq habitation and Acadian dykes as reminders of their early settlers. The museum houses various exhibits of the Davison family, local history, and the area’s industrial history. With over one thousand artifacts in the museum collection, display changes occur several times a year. Please visit our website for details of our current display topics. Visitors are invited to stroll through the museum garden areas, where many of the original plants and trees can still be found. The museum also offers short walking trails, as well as a wilderness trail for the more experienced walkers – both providing opportunities to experience nature. Other museum features include a gift shop, picnic area, Internet access and parking. Bus tours are welcome.
