Amazing reconstruction. The actors really embody the period and location. I know more about the history of Nova Scotia now and love the people--the heritage is special.
The Port Royal Habitation is a fascinating place and taught me a whole lot about our history that I never knew! The present structure is a reconstruction of the original that was burnt (by the British, I'm ashamed to say) in 1607. It has been reconstructed according to the site plans by using the original early 17th century building methods... More
The Habitation is perfectly restored & in excellent condition. The entire place is built the way it would have been in the 17 century. The costumes worn by staff are impressive & add to the feeling of actually being in a different time. Almost everything is interesting & the guides were friendly & helpful. I greatly enjoyed it & found... More

Seeing the way people lived over four hundred years ago is in a colony that was almost exactly like this one was very interesting... More

We really enjoyed learning about the history of this site dating back over 400 years. Fascinating to hear and read about the relationship between the English, French and the local Indians (going back 1000's of years). Very hard to imagine what life must have been like for the first 15 settlers. The descriptions of each of the rooms along with... More
there is SO much to learn from visiting this site. the relations to settlements such as jamestown for example. the particular national historic site is particularly well reconstructed, restored and displayed. exceptionally presented, the entire area is well kept, clean and so very well described from it's early inception and formative days of habitation until the end of this site's...
