Who We Are

The Queens County Museum, built in 1980, is a vibrant and enduring testimonial of a history intrinsically linked to the forests and sea.  A natural component of this vast cultural heritage is the Mi’Kmaq or Eastern Woodland Indians.  The contribution these ‘first peoples’ have made to the cultural mosaic and survival of this County are preserved in a variety of Mi’kmaq artifacts and stone drawings on exhibit at the Museum Complex.  Throughout the years the people of Queens have recorded many stories of Privateering, forestry, fishing, shipbuilding and merchant shipping. One of the most significant historical documents is the Simeon Perkins’ Diary.  But the Queens County Museum is more than a collection of artifacts, photographs and historical documents.   It’s an educational resource.   In addition to the exhibits, the Queens County Historical Society maintains extensive Archives dedicated to Liverpool Author and Historian, Dr. Thomas H. Raddall.

 

Routes to Your Roots

The Queens County Museum houses the Thomas Raddall Research Centre.  This Centre is a participant of Routes to Your Roots, where you can come in and research your family tree.
