Welcome to McCulloch House Museum & Genealogy Centre!


Please take a minute to browse our site and take the time to visit us in person.

We provided guided tours, or an informative self guided tour (if you prefer) of the McCulloch House Museum at 100 Haliburton Road.

We also promote local history by offering exhibits about our community, our families and the history of Pictou County at the Genealogy Centre. Currently we are hosting "Pieces of Pictou: Canada 150 " in February.

Our extensive research, archival and library collection is a valuable resource for researchers, students, historians and genealogists.
