Overview
More
Sherbrooke Village depicts a Nova Scotian village from 1860 to pre-WW1. With 80 buildings, over 25 open to the public, most with costumed interpreters, it is the largest Nova Scotia Museum site. Visit the woodturner shop, blacksmith, pottery shop, and printery. Built on an economy of ship building, lumbering and gold mining, Sherbrooke Village reflects Nova Scotia as it was during its industrial boom in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

I was here back in 2004 and photographed it using a 6 megapixel Nikon. CF cards were 16GB so I didn't shoot that much. I never even went inside the buildings, I just shot the exteriors. Now with a 36 megapixel Nikon and a huge...More

I loved Sherbrooke village. It was super interesting and authentic. My only complaint was that the tea room had terrible service. They didn't even take our order until over a half hour. I would suggest bringing a packed lunch. It was an overall great experience!
