Welcome to the Little White Schoolhouse!


Step back to the days of slates and handbells at the Little White Schoolhouse Museum, a Truro landmark devoted to the history of early education in Nova Scotia in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Formerly a school building, the museum is fully restored and contains books and artifacts from the era of the one-room schoolhouse, as well as photos of the Provincial Normal School and College.  The museum is open June 1 – August 31 and located on the grounds of the NSCC Truro Campus.

Researchers can book an appointment to explore early education in Nova Scotia through archival documents housed on site.
