Located in the home of RB Dickie, one of the architects of Canada in 1867, this museum offers a good insight into the more than 350 years of European settlement in the Head of Fundy region. Good compliment to a visit to Fort Beausejour if you are looking for info on out Canadian journey. Excellent genealogy resources too.

Super friendly volunteer staff - step back in time & learn about the early days of Amherst, and look up family history....this museum is a wealth of help.
