Clean it Right logoCOVID-19 Safety PosterThis summer was a most unusual summer. The Visitor Information Centre (VIC)  was able to open to the public following strict COVID-19 Health protocols. We were unable to open public access to the Museum Exhibit Area.

Plans for the 2021 Season

As we move forward with our planning for next season, with the ongoing concerns related to the control of the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we will evaluate opening access in 2021 based on the advice and recommendations of Nova Scotia’s Chief Medical Officer, Public Health and Safety, and the Government of Nova Scotia. We want to be sure we have the appropriate protocols in place to ensure the safety of our staff and our visitors.


Our online store (https://www.guysboroughhistoricalsociety.ca/shop/) is still open.  We will continue to fill your book or clothing orders as usual. Items from our store would make great Christmas/Holiday gifts.


Thank you for your continued interest and support as we navigate our way into 2021 working in this “new normal”. Stay Safe!
