The Queens County Museum, located at 109 Main Street in Liverpool, Nova Scotia has a long and rich history beginning with the aboriginal Mi’kmaq people. In 1759, Liverpool was settled by New England Planters (colonists). Throughout the years the people of Queens have recorded many stories of Privateering, forestry, fishing, shipbuilding and merchant shipping. One of the most significant historical documents is the Simeon Perkins’ diary. These volumes provide a detailed record of daily life in the early years of the county. The Museum is the keeper of this and many other important links to our past. The Museum was built in the style of a large colonial-era warehouse, similar to what could have been found in Liverpool 200 years earlier. It sits adjacent to the Simeon Perkins House Museum-the oldest house in the Nova Scotia Museum Collection.It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Queens County Museum and many more Liverpool attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Liverpool driving holiday planner.

Fascinating history, some nice artifacts and lovely staff!! A worthy stop for just a donation. Thank you to the sweet lady at the counter! 🙌🏻
Excellent museum the interturpitors were very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I learned a great deal about the 18th century house and the items used. The museum has an excellent collection of nautical items relating to the area and the research archives would benefit anyone looking for family history or area history.
