Malagash Salt Miners' Museum

The Malagash Salt Miners' Museum is a small, local museum devoted to preserving the history and heritage of the Malagash area and the first salt mine in Canada. We are located at 1926 North Shore Road in Malagash, Nova Scotia -- just down the road from the Jost winery. We have exhibits of various aspects of local history -- mining, farming, labour unions, schooling, and daily life through the community's history. This page was made with the help of a Young Canada Works grant.

Our Exhibits


The Malagash Salt Miners' Museum has a small yet comprehensive collection that shows off many historical aspects of life in the area. Our collection is mostly donated from local residents, and offers insight into the history of Malagash.

  • Mining display that shows the history of the Malagash Salt Company and its evolution, also containing exhibits on the Pugwash mine that operates to this day

  • Home display showing various odds and ends of rural Nova Scotian life

  • School display with genealogical research

  • Tools of all kinds of trades plied in Malagash

  • And more!
