Explore Colchester’s past and present through fascinating museum exhibits, archival resources, and heritage events.
The Colchester Historical Society continues to preserve and present Colchester County’s past by striving to offer an authentic and inclusive perspective of local history and culture through community and visitor engagement in its operation of the Colchester Historeum, a museum and archives located in Truro, Nova Scotia. Using contemporary methods of interpretation, collections management, and education, we encourage conversation, understanding, and meaningful connections between all individuals.
The Museum collects, preserves and exhibits artifacts and stories related to Colchester heritage.
The Archives preserves thousands of records, documents, publications and photos to help with historical and genealogical research.
