Today it is the home base for The Dartmouth Heritage Museum. Come and explore our current exhibits: Evergreen in the Victorian Era, The Dartmouth Makers’ Gallery, Helen Creighton and the World of Folklore, Explosion! Dartmouth’s Ordeal of the 1917 Disaster, Toys Through Time, and the Victorian Nursery. We also have a small gift shop on site.
