Set along the scenic shores of the Avon River on the site where New England Planters' sloop The Lydia and Sally landed in 1760, our museum features exhibits on the New England Planters, Acadian settlers, local house histories, family histories, and Avon River ecology.

It is also home to the Avon River Arts Society and their Artist Landing Gallery, the Lydia and Sally Café, and the Planter's Sea Chest Gift Shop, which features products handcrafted by local Nova Scotian artists and artisans.
