Hi All! April here again,
I’ve known the Nova Scotia Highland Village since I was a child. My mother has worked there for most of my life. I grew up in and around museums (including the Mac Donald House Museum in Lake Ainslie).
The Highland Village has seen a lot of changes over the past number of years and it has steadily grown and strives to preserve and promote the Gaelic Culture of this area. It a must-see for those who are interested in history, genealogy and Cape Breton culture. This video shows just a bit of the dedication the staff have to preserving a way of life.
They have candlelight tours available on select days throughout the summer, and they also have children’s programs where kids can learn what life was like for kids just like themselves in the past.
The Nova Scotia Highland Village is great for all ages and is an awesome way to spend a day!
