This lovely little schoolhouse feel like it is just waiting for a new group of pupils to arrive any minute. There were too very knowledgeable staff members to explain all the items (not so necessary for the 4 seniors in this party. Two of us are retired teachers and the loved all the artifacts that allowed them to reminisce about how it was when they started out in their careers 50 years ago. Well worth the visit.

The schoolhouse has a classroom set up just like when I went to school. It brought back many memories of my school days. Great place for kids of to day to see how class rooms used to be when their grandparents went to school. They also do research of family history. I had gone to the new library to get some information about my Great Aunt who attend the Normal collage and they sent me to the Schoolhouse Museum. I got the information I was looking for and very quickly.

We visited this real schoolhouse with our children, and they found it fascinating to see how school was conducted in an earlier time. This is a school that was moved from Digby County, and is now outfitted with authentic period furnishings of a school. It was like being in the class of 1860, as the "schoolmaster" explained how things were done, while we sat in the desks. They showed a short movie highlighting some 'old school' practices. Lots of artifacts to browse through, but they are in place, as if the school were still in use. Don't worry about the FEARSOME strap mentioned earlier; they are not using it on visitors!

We dropped in here while hubby napped from a long plane ride and because it was across the street from our hotel. Very nice and well laid out. Guide was very informative but also left us alone to look at all the items on display. Well done!
