The Kings Historical Society acknowledges that we are located in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral lands and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq people.  We acknowledge the treaties of peace and friendship, and we thank the Mi’kmaw nation for their generosity in sharing their homeland with us. 

Due to the rising  levels of Covid-19  infections in NS we have decided to close the museum (to the public) one week early for the winter season. Rather than Dec 1 we are closing as of today, Nov 25, 2020.  Our offices remain open Monday-Friday 9am-4pm until December 18th , 2020.  

Welcome to  the  website of  Nova Scotia’s Kings County Museum.


We are pleased to showcase our museum and the work being done by the Kings Historical Society, who own and operate the museum. Welcome and enjoy!


  Monday – Friday-  Museum Closed to the public. Staff in offices.
