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.

We stumbled upon this by accident on our way down the coast towards Halifax. So glad we did. I've been to several historic towns, but this was my favorite. It's fairly large with many interesting houses and shops to visit. We had to rush because...More

I visited Sherbrooke Village many times as a kid, including one magical summer at week-long camps. We were given the chance to dress in period costume, and experienced life the way people lived in the late 1800s. We got to churn our own butter, make...More

They hire the right people. They are knowledgeable, friendly and engaged. They all appear to love their work. The place is big. We took over 4 hours. There always seems to be special events going on.

As you walk around each building has someone to tell you about the history and there is LOADS going on. Don't miss the sawmill, which is away from the main village. We have visited many 'living museums' and this is one of the best we...More
