Wile Carding Mill Museum

Reviewed By William W - St. Petersburg, Florida

This has been one of the highlights of our 2 week Nova Scotia vacation.
The tour was informative, interesting and hands-on which even made it more fun and enjoyable.
We agree with all the positive comments posted by other reviewers.
Don't miss it! Well worth the very inexpensive admission price.

Glimpses Theatre Troupe

Reviewed By Nordicpolewalker - Halifax, Canada

What an enjoyable evening. The story of Lunenburg in story and song. Well acted by a talented, enthusiastic cast of local actors. You can easily see why it has been a hit at the Fisheries Museum in Lunenburg for 10 years. We can understand the cast and crew wanting a rest after all these years, but it is a shame that this is the last season for Glimpses. Try to see it before it closes the 2nd week of Sept. You won't be sorry you took the time.

Denise knows her region. She did a great job of pointing me to photo locations. Not only does she know these places but she takes out her other workers on walking tours in the area so that they are also well informed. Well done.

St. John's Anglican Church

Reviewed By Nancy H

Don't miss this beautiful church if you have time. The stained glass windows were saved after a devastating fire and the church was rebuilt from donations from around the world. The woodwork is gorgeous too. Worth the visit.

We stopped here after the staff at the Wile Carding Mill Museum told us about it. Since it was Saturday, admission was free. There was lots of interesting exhibits, each with challenges and hands on activities for the kids to do. The display on working women was well done.

Sam's Woodland Tours

The trail was well groomed and easy to walk on and the tour guide (Sam Wentzell) was informative and entertaining. We recommend this to anyone who is in the Bridgewater area with an hour and a half to explore Bridgewater's beauty and interesting history.
