O’Dell House Museum

The O’Dell House Museum located at 136 St George Street is Annapolis Royal’s community museum.  Located in a waterfront inn and tavern built in 1869, the museum tells the story of Nova Scotia Pony Express rider Corey O’Dell and his family.  In the museum’s period rooms, the interpretation branches out to demonstrate the prosperity of Annapolis Royal at the end of the 19th century.  The building also houses the Annapolis Heritage Society Genealogy Centre, and various contemporary exhibits on the history of Annapolis Royal.  Throughout the year, the museum hosts various events including the ever popular Victorian Christmas and Tales from a Tiny Perfect Town.  For regular updates on our activities, check our blog.
