Bank of Nova Scotia Museum

Bank of Nova Scotia Museum Review

The museum has an exhibit about the 1929 tidal wave that struck Burin and the surrounding coastal region, an event that occurred around the same time Al Capone was running rum through here. The famous gangster helped raise money for the fishing community's cottage hospital and arts center. The museum is part of Burin's Heritage Square, along with the Burin Heritage House, which is decorated to recall the lives of its first owners, the Reddy family.
