Welcome

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. 

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!

Given the continued spread of COVID-19 and based on public health officials’ guidance, The KINGS COUNTY MUSEUM will remain closed until the restrictions imposed by the provincial government and Health NS are rescinded, and the government/Health NS sets a date allowing the reopening of public institutions and public gatherings.

Our staff will begin work in their offices on the OFFICIAL government public space and gathering RE-OPENING date. The KINGS COUNTY MUSEUM will open to the public one week later.

We are committed to keeping you informed as we receive additional information. Please join our social media channels where we continue to share updates and stories. If you are have questions about specific events, please contact us directly.

For the most up-to-date information on COVID-19 and Nova Scotia’s response, visit novascotia.ca/coronavirus.

We  will update our information for the 2020  season in the coming days.
