Kings County Museum is housed in the former Kings County Courthouse, which served as Kings County’s seat of justice and municipal government from 1903-1980. Located in Kentville in the Fundy Shore and Annapolis Valley region, the museum provides a collection of cultural and natural history artifacts; archives of Kings County history and genealogy; and a Parks Canada National Commemorative Exhibit to the New England Planters. The original courtroom and furnishings continue to be maintained today as one of the museum’s permanent exhibits. Main floor is wheelchair-accessible.
