It's a small museum for a small town. Will give you an idea of local history. Has a cool costume room with cloths from the 1900s

This is a small museum but it makes up for it by showing an appetizing slice of Digby history. The rooms' exhibits and information are well planned and explain much about the notable families, economy and history of the town. The staff are extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and for anyone doing genealogical research - this is a perfect place.

It rained one day we were in Digby so ended up going to the musuem. It's very small, but it's nice to see this small community take pride in their roots. Let's face it, there's not much to do in Digby, but we spent 30-45 minutes learning about their history.

We (my husband and I) recently visited this museum. Some very interesting photos and other artifacts were brought to our attention by our informative guide. There is also a section for genealogy which will pull me back for another visit. If you are a history buff, then this place will feed you.

The Museum has excellent displays which are well grouped and arranged to lead from one area of interest to another. The staff were extremely knowledgeable about local history, the families in the area, and very accommodating about helping with research. This was an excellent starting point for discovering local history and investigating genealogy including for the villages on Brier and... More
