Age of Sail Heritage Centre

Overlooking the tidal Greville River, the center pays tribute to the heritage of the communities along the Minas Channel. Through pictures, videos, story telling, models, artifacts and hands-on exhibits, the museum brings to life the history of shipbuilding, lumbering and local community lives. The area boosts a rich history from the time of the dinosaurs to the Mi'kmaq and Acadians to loyalists and shipbuilders to the present day. The heritage center hosts a museum in an 1854 church, 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. Definitely a "must see" stop while in the region.
