Working Museums

Plan to spend an entire day at Ross Farm Museum where every day is a new adventure in rural living!
Always a hit for families, this year-round, 60-acre agricultural museum is a fascinating living, working farm that lets you step back in time to experience rural life in the 1800s.

Located on Highway #12 in picturesque New Ross, Ross Farm Museum is just 15 minutes from the Lighthouse route, or 25 minutes from the Gloosecap Trail. Get hands-on experience with candle-making, wood-working and garden planting, or watch costumed farm “workers” churning butter, making horseshoes and cooking delicious  biscuits on an open fire. All ages will love the wagon rides, nature walk and a visit with the farm’s friendly heritage animals. Activities change every day so each visit is brand new experience!
