We live in the Annapolis Royal area, having moved there from the States about two years ago, but we had occasion to take some visiting friends to the Tidal Power Plant on a visit this summer. The exhibits are quite interesting but the highlight was...More

Being an engineer, I was quite interested in the station. However, non-engineers might not find it so engaging. It does also contain the local Visitor Information Center, and does have a nice viewing deck, so it's worth a brief stop anyway.

We stopped spontaneously at our trip to Annapolis Royal at the tidal power plant. We got a nice, quick tour without prior booking. Could be a little more detailed though.

If you are remotely interested in science, technology, engineering then you will love this place. Free parking, free admission, worth the stop. Les the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and patiently answered the many questions we had. I found it very interesting.

Trip Report - Cape Breton and Nova Scotia (4 Replies)
Below is a summary of a recent two week trip to Nova Scotia, Cape Breton. Probably more details than anyone would want! We flew to Halifax airport, picked up rental car (Enterprise, $1,000 for 13 days) around 8 pm and drove to Inverness (3 hour drive). Since it was dark we couldn’t see much, but did enjoy the strobe light from the Port Hood (?) light house! Stayed at Cabot Links for one night so my husband could golf at the new course (Cliffside, he said it was spectacular). My daughter...More

What a great time you had! You sure packed a lot into a short time. You certainly planned well to do so much and your recommendations will help others. It is great that you enjoyed and experienced so much. It would be good if you gave short reviews of the places you stayed. Do you have any advice to future visitors?
