This is such a great place to visit! Ivan is entertaining and talented. He provides an informative interactive tour of 'Peggy's Museum acompanied by stories and some history. He is an award winning author, a creative photographer and an artist. It is an exceptional experience in local culture. Well worth the trip!!
Friendly, cheerful, "character" owns and runs this interesting and usually overlooked little gem on the way from Halifax to Peggy's Cove. The house has historical artifacts and Ivan has many stories, most of which are true and some just might be embellished. Well worth the time to stop and have a look.
