Set in the heart of the small community of Bass River, Nova Scotia, the Bass River Heritage Museum has been welcoming visitors from all around the globe since 2000. Located in an old church, this museum offers a look into the history of the community of Bass River, and provides a first hand look at the wooden chair making company that was once located on this site: Dominion Chair Company, established in 1860.

Besides providing an in depth look at the chairs that the community is known for, we also have displays focusing on community life, and the World Wars.

Join us on Historic Places Day for a fun filled look at the history of this unique community!
