Cupids Legacy Centre & Museum

Cupids Legacy Centre & Museum Review

With interactive displays, interpretive tours, a shop, and an archaeological lab, this is a good place to get a glimpse of the English settlement founded here in 1610. The bright and modern museum traces 400 years of settlement in the area through interactive exhibits and a selection of the 153,000 artifacts recovered to date at the archaeological site. These include trade beads and the oldest coin found in Canada. You can visit the Plantation site dig nearby and see (and talk to) technicians at work in the laboratory.
