Museums and historic sites

The story of the ecology of the Bay of Fundy and the history of settlement is told at museums and historic sites around the Bay. Did you know that this was where some of the first European settlers arrived in North America over 400 years ago, establishing early communities on the Bay of Fundy shores? The struggle between the British and the French for control of this region and the emergence of ship-building and the coastal economy that followed is told in national historic sites around the Bay.
