The Highland Village Museum is an outdoor living history museum that tells the story of Gaelic settlement in Nova Scotia. It is located on a stunning 43-acre property overlooking the majestic Bras d’Or Lakes in Iona, Nova Scotia, the heart of central Cape Breton. 11 historic buildings are staffed by costumed animators who are passionate about sharing the Gaelic culture of our ancestors. The museum also hosts special events and programs throughout the year. The Highland Village is open daily from June 1 - October 18.
