Time to Be a Modern-Day Explorer
Welcome to Yarmouth & Acadian Shores, the ancestral home of the Mi’kmaq (now a large community known as the Acadia First Nation), with archaeological evidence dating back 4,000 years. A remote place where international explorers gathered, drawn by the rich bounty of the sea and beauty of the land. And a region where Indigenous, English, Acadian, and African Nova Scotian cultures have coexisted for hundreds of years. Take a walk through time, and visit our museums and historical places in Nova Scotia.
