Queens County is steeped in history beginning with the Mi’kmaq people. The French influence began in 1604 followed by the New England Planters in 1759. Over the years, the people of Queens have chronicled the area’s rich history and its inherent link to the sea and forest. Queens County Museum, located in Liverpool along the South Shore houses many of these stories of privateering, forestry, fishing, shipbuilding and merchant shipping. The museum’s permanent exhibits include Mi’kmaq life, privateering, guiding, shipbuilding, and the community’s involvement on and off the field during World War I and World War II. Visit our website for upcoming exhibitions and events. The Museum Gift Shop offers a variety of items including souvenirs, publications unique to Nova Scotia, jewelry and much more. Bus tours are welcome.
