Stopped to visit and found it interesting though small. It is free but they do ask for donations. Allowed my grandson to experience his first museum in Nova Scotia.

While small, this museum is crammed with interesting artifacts and history, in an historical building, The smallish rooms constrain the exhibit spaces and there is nothing "high tech." That said, we thoroughly enjoyed the museum, taking a bit over an hour to see it all, and had great conversation with the knowledgeable docents.

For the size of town, it was really well done. We enjoyed our time there. If you have ancestors from the area, they offer very inexpensive research/
