Welcome to the Kings County Museum’s Website 


Welcome back!

We are excited to open our doors, but there are a few things

you need to know before you visit…

The Kings County Museum will be following all COVID-19 protocols!

      • All visitors must practice  social distancing to reduce their exposure to other people – this means you should stay at least six feet away from anyone you do not live with or within your social circle.
      • Masks are mandatory for staff and visitors. Children under the age of two are exempt, as well as people with a valid medical reason for not wearing a mask.
      • Researchers are welcome, but visits are through appointment only.  Please call 902-678-6237 to reserve a time.
      • We will be collecting visitor information for contact tracing.
      • As always, please stay home if you are feeling unwell.
