The history of Three Shores dates back to the days of the dinosaurs. With the number of heritage and cultural venues you’ll find to explore, we know you’ll have no trouble believing that. Three Shores is home to heritage sites of major significance like the Joggins Fossil Cliffs UNESCO World Heritage Site , the Canso Islands National Historic Site and Fort Lawrence National Historic Site. In addition, there are ten provincial museums found in communities along our coast including the province’s largest museum complex Sherbrooke Village, and the impressive facilities at the Fundy Geological Museum in Parrsboro and the Nova Scotia Museum of Industry in Stellarton.
Our communities celebrate their own heritage with museums honouring their roots like Ballentyne’s Cove Tuna Interpretive Centre, Goldenville Gold Mining Interpretive Centre , and Pictou’s Hector Heritage Quay with its replica of the Ship Hector that carried the first 168 stalwart Scottish emigrants to our shores. From shipbuilding to coal mining to folk singing – from heritage farms and more than 50 heritage lighthouses, from Celtic language summer courses to Mi’kmaq beading workshops, history here lives, breathes, and shines a bright light on our traditions, culture, and way of life.
