When a good friend and avid bagpipe music collector passed away, his collection was accepted at the Antigonish Heritage Museum. It is quite extensive, with possibly as many as 35, 000 bagpipe tunes in printed collections or photo copies.

This museum preserves the heritage of this town. It had a lot of pictures and artifacts. What was neat, is that this museum is located in a former train station. That was cool! Quite enjoyable!

Third time visiting. First time about 15 years ago. Very helpful and connected us with a local historian who opened many doors for me as I searched family history.

What better place than a museum for a ceilidh and chance to hear and meet the locals! Sweet music of a bygone era gives real taste of local Scottish heritage -- a very different place.

Warmly greeted as I entered and was offered help a couple of time. Lots of nice old photos and artifacts from Antigonish and surrounding area. I really liked the old fire wagon and farm implements.
