Welcome to  the  website of  Nova Scotia’s Kings County Museum.  We are pleased to showcase our museum and the work being done by the Kings Historical Society, who own and operate the museum. Welcome and enjoy!

The Museum is open from Monday to Friday 9AM-4PM

We are honoured to be the recipients of the David White Trophy for our 2018 garden.

This from  the Kings Business Community ~ Festival of Flowers ~

“DAVID WHITE TROPHY … Kings County Museum.  Incorporating edible with existing plant material takes skill and planning to create unity in a garden.  The vegetable signage was perfect!”
