LaHave Island Marine Museum

Welcome to the LaHave Islands Marine Museum Website.
The LaHave Islands Marine Museum is a museum with artifacts and information on the history of the in-shore fisheries and life on the LaHave Islands in Nova Scotia, Canada. Through this website, you can learn about the LaHave Islands and the surrounding area. You can also see photographs of some of the artifacts we have on display at the museum.

In the past, the LaHave Islands was a small fishing community about 30 kilometers from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia. It relied on fishing, both in-shore and off-shore, for its prosperity and it was hard to find someone who wasn’t involved in the fishing industry in their day to day lives.

Today, the fishing industry has died down and most of the homes on the islands are used as cottages by summer vacationers. 
The LaHave Islands Marine Museum seeks to preserve the memories and artifacts of the past and put them on display for all to see and remember. We are open daily from 10 am to 5 pm in the summer from June 1st to September 1. Admission is free, but donations are welcome. The museum can also be opened outside of these times by appointment.

PETITE RIVIERE VINEYARDS uses only grapes from the LaHave River Valley. Our poor rocky soil and long, mild growing season provide an ideal terroir for quality wines. The wines bear the name of this unique region, “Côtes de LaHave”.
