Shelburne is an interesting little town, full of history. The day we were there was very, very, hot, and that made walking and museum touring rather uncomfortable, but this is not the norm for NS. A pass for all the museums in the complex is available at a reasonable rate. The guides are well informed and pleasant, and leave you to wander on your own, rather than making you listen to a boring spiel. The complex gives you a great overview of the growth and development of Shelburne from its Loyalist beginnings to the decline of the fisheries and shipbuilding in the 20th century. Worth the trip, especially if you follow the coastal byways and watch for the many lighthouses along the way!
