Description & Services

Information The Queens County Museum, located at 109 Main Street in Liverpool, Nova Scotia has a long and rich history beginning with the aboriginal Mi’kmaq people.  
In 1759, Liverpool was settled by New England Planters (colonists). Throughout the years the people of Queens have recorded many stories of Privateering, forestry, fishing, shipbuilding and merchant shipping.  
One of the most significant historical documents is the Simeon Perkins’ diary.  
These volumes provide a detailed record of daily life in the early years of the county.  
The Museum is the keeper of this and many other important links to our past.  
The Museum was built in the style of a large colonial-era warehouse, similar to what could have been found in Liverpool 200 years earlier.  
It sits adjacent to the Simeon Perkins House Museum-the oldest house in the Nova Scotia Museum Collection. 
The Queens County Museum offers a range of programs throughout the year. During the school year we have many programs designed for a variety of ages for teachers to choose from. 
At the Queens County Museum there are many opportunities to become part of the scene. Whether your interest is in history, volunteering, social committees or any other area we have a place for you.
Hours Open 9-5pm Monday to Sunday, year round, June through October also Sunday 1- 5pm. Gift Shop. Displays on different aspects of Queens County History.
