“Hooked Rugs like you have never seen”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

This little museum was very interesting and the hooked rugs will blow your mind! The artist who created the rugs also left her household items to the museum and so there is a section where you get a window into the history of Cheticamp.

“Great Acadian History”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

This wonderful place is a combination of several different functions and it does them all very well. It is a museum that fondly shows a lot of the local Acadian history. It features a fantastic display of some of the best rug hooking products anywhere in North America and this is worth seeing by itself. It has PCs you can use for Acadian genealogical research and it has a pile of local tourist information. The staff is excellent and helpful.

“So glad we stopped in”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

This is a wonderful small museum with very informative exhibits and a wonderful hooked rug collection. Learning about local history always makes a visit more meaningful and this is very much the case here in Cheticamp. It was very quiet when we were there in early October and towards the end of the visit we were the only ones there, which gave us an opportunity to have a nice long chat with the lady who was doing the rug hooking demonstration. She not only talked about the rug hooking but also about life in Cheticamp and how difficult it is to keep the old traditions going with young people moving away to find jobs elsewhere. Talking to her made the visit extra special.
The rugs by Elizabeth Lefort are amazing, what an artist.
