Memories of Yarmouth

Each of the rotating photos in the display to the left represents an era spanning nearly or over 100 years ago from the community of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. These images have been taken from the Yarmouth County Museum and Archives' extensive collection of old Post Cards.

If you happen to be in the Yarmouth area, why not come in and see the large collection of fascinating artifacts we have to offer.

Welcome to Yarmouth County Museum

An award-winning museum with over 20,000 artifacts that document Yarmouth County's heritage, in a historic former church. We have the third largest ship portrait collection in Canada.
