Shelburne County Museum

The heart and soul of Shelburne

See Canada's oldest fire pumper - a 1750's Newsham- and learn about firefighting in colonial Shelburne.


Discover the heart and soul of the Town of Shelburne and the surrounding County. From the founding peoples - the Mi'kmaq, Loyalist, Black Loyalist, Acadian, Planters and Welsh - to the glorious shipbuilding era and the fishery, the Shelburne County Museum tells all through fascinating artefacts like model ships, antique tools, portraits, costumes and maps.


The resource centre is stacked with founding documents, private papers, court records and genealogical information for the dogged researcher. For more information or to make an appointment, see our Research page.
