Sherbrooke Village depicts a Nova Scotian village from 1860 to pre-WW1. With 80 buildings, over 25 open to the public, most with costumed interpreters, it is the largest Nova Scotia Museum site. Visit the woodturner shop, blacksmith, pottery shop, and printery. Built on an economy of ship building, lumbering and gold mining, Sherbrooke Village reflects Nova Scotia as it was during its industrial boom in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

Visited the village and the sites that were up the road. The village was relatively quiet (except for the adorable little orange kittens). Shame that there is no longer a potter, although the active print shop was great to see. The majority of the buildings...More

Much of the village at Sherbrooke is a living history from 9 to 5 each day. The locals dress in period dress of the 1860s and are well versed in the history of the village at that time period. Most of the buildings can be...More

It is an old village by a river. When people wanted to sell their houses, the museum bought them and repair them. It is different from the green field village in Michigan, where the old buildings were moved from elsewhere to make a village. People...More

We were here on a fairly quiet day - it was a bit before lunch and I think there were only about three other groups of visitors walking the grounds. It was really special seeing this preserved and restored historical town. Everything was very authentic...More

We spent a very pleasant afternoon touring the village and visiting the different shops. It is beautifully restored and an interesting look into Nova Scotia history. I was a little disappointed, as an avid quilter, that the quilt display was replaced with an art exhibit,...More
