Thank you for your interest in the history of the town of Glace Bay and our Heritage Museum. We would also like to thank the many volunteers, societies, patrons, and sponsors who have made this museum possible. Our history lives on because of the kind support and involvement of these individuals, who are dedicated to its preservation.

We would also encourage all visitors to check out the links we have provided for you. Here you will find museum affiliates, friends and supporters of the museum, other attractions in and around Glace Bay, and further information about historical Cape Breton.
