Such a sweet museum. Interesting fossil section. Neat to see how the butter was made. Upstairs the Anna Swan exhibit is great. Our boys did a little scavenger hunt and then made rope. Lovely staff and experience.

Who knew a giantess originated near Tatamagouche? Wow! My daughter and I were captivated and it was a great way to spend some time. The museum is lovingly curated and there are great activities for children. Well worth the visit!

This is a small museum but is full of interesting things to see and to read. Anna Swan was the tallest women in the world at the time and it is treating to read about her life.

The Anna Swan museum is a small room within the Creamery Square complex, one of four museum areas. Anna Swan had an interesting life and there are a few interesting artefacts here, as well as life-size cutouts of her and her husband (also with giantism)....More
