Welcome to Chapel Hill Museum!
Chapel Hill Museum is where the history of Shag Harbour, Nova Scotia, Canada comes to life. This former United Baptist church was erected in 1856.
It stands on what was once the location of a 17th Century Acadian trading post, Le Vieux Logis. Chapel Hill Museum opened its doors for the first time in 1979, and with the support and determination of the community and especially the Chapel Hill Historical Society, it has only flourished in the thirty-two years it has been open.
In Chapel Hill Museum, you’ll find some of Nova Scotia’s most overlooked history, one of a kind artifacts, and an observation tower. More than anything, you’ll see the heart and soul of the small fishing village of Shag Harbour, and the dedication of the community members.
We are open daily from June 15 until September 15. The hours of operation are 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Admission to the museum is free, but donations are greatly appreciated as they are what have kept the museum running for the past thirty-two years.
