Overview
More
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.

Visited the village and the sites that were up the road. The village was relatively quiet (except for the adorable little orange kittens). Shame that there is no longer a potter, although the active print shop was great to see. The majority of the buildings...More

Much of the village at Sherbrooke is a living history from 9 to 5 each day. The locals dress in period dress of the 1860s and are well versed in the history of the village at that time period. Most of the buildings can be...More
