“Very interesting small museum”

Shelburne Museum Complex
Ranked #5 of 14 things to do in Shelburne
Attraction details
Reviewed September 17, 2017 via mobile

We bought the three pack entrance to the museums in Shelburne. Fun little museum. One of its current exhibits is the history on women's undergarments which was interesting. Very knowledgable and friendly staff.

We really loved this simple yet informative museum which consists of three different locations all very close to each other. Worth visiting

We visited the museum complex which is made up of 3 sites. We particularly enjoyed the Dory museum. The staff there were very informative and took the time to interact with visitors. The Ross Thompson home was interesting and the staff person provided some interesting historical information. There was a display of women's' underwear at the county museum. The staff there seemed very disinterested, despite the fact we were the only people there.

Stopped here whilst driving around Nova Scotia. The array of buildings was excellent and provided an opportunity to have a good walk amongst historical buildings.

We loved the Dory Museum and the Ross Thomson home. They were very informative. I would skip the Shelburne County Museum. Nobody asked if we had any questions - they were too busy eating cake !
