If you have Scottish roots this is a must see. A very well done museum with wonderful staff. Rain or shine it is worth a stop to see this display and go on the ship.

We went based on good reviews and learned much about how the Scottish settled this part of Nova Scotia, arriving on the Hector, a small sailing vessel, A reproduction was adjacent to the museum. Be sure to listen to the dvd in the rigging area first. Volunteer workers making repairs took time to talk with us.

For those with any Canadian/Scottish history interest - this is a must stop. You can spend several hours reading and touring about the Quay.

With having a Scottish ancestry, we had to stop here. Very interesting story about the Hector and the Scottish settlers. Got to go inside the actual reconstructed boat. The guide on the boat was very informative and interesting. Knew a lot about the boat and the people.

The video was amazing describing the whole story of the town. And, how neat to walk on a real ship! The artifacts were great and we had a guide walk around with us to give us even more information. Very affordable tour!
