Welcome To The Cole Harbour Heritage Farm Museum
The Cole Harbour Heritage Farm Museum is a community museum dedicated to preserving and interpreting Cole Harbour's agricultural past, and to developing understanding of plants, animals and farming today. It is owned and operated by the Cole Harbour Rural Heritage Society, a registered charity which relies heavily on community support, volunteers and donations. ADMISSION IS BY DONATION so plan to come often and reconnect with your rural roots!
The Farm Museum is open seven days a week from May 15 to October 15. Throughout the winter months we are open by appointment for research, resources and enquiries.
