Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

We got there late and left early next day. It was a stop on the way to Cape Breton. We liked the B and B and the Jade Restaurant. The food was fresh and well cooked.

We arrived just as a fire broke out in the village, which was very sad but as a result we were not able to leave as the main water hose encompassed the car park we were in so we ended up staying several hours - as a result we met many of the locals, who were just so friendly. This is a very pretty part of the world - and look out for the wee soap shop, the owner is delightful and her soaps are just lovely.

Our family just visited the Village this weekend. This is an interactive living history museum! We learned about printing and saw a press being used, we learned about hand cream and how it was made and my favourite we got to saw wood. The best part was the horse and wagon event and a visit to the functioning saw mill! If you love history, you can not miss the village. I only wish we could have ridden on the Village's icon bicycle!

We visited Sherbrooke Village with our 7-month old daughter and although she's too young to understand, she was taking everything in and had a great day. We spent a good 3-hours within the village itself including lunch at the restaurant which was excellent. All the staff were very kind, friendly, inviting and knowledgeable. Great work has been put into the restoration and upkeep of all the buildings and contents within them. The village is a great reminder of what life was like in rural Nova Scotia many years ago and I hope that its preserved for generations to come. There are bathroom facilities with baby change stations and a gift shop where you can purchase local crafts along with items made within the village itself like pottery and wooden items made by the wood turner.

Now this is a place in which you could get lost in time! It is wonderful to visit a village that really was a village - this is authentic, in fact some homes are still private. The staff are dressed in period clothes and are in most buildings to give you history and interesting demonstrations. I could have spent all day here but we did end up going through everything in about 2 1/2 hours. We also stopped in at the café for lunch and enjoyed soup and sandwiches. The place is very well run and for only $11.75/adult and $4.75/child it is well worth it!
