The Quaco Museum and Library opened in July 1978. The Museum contains the permanent collection of artifacts and other material relating to the history and heritage of the Quaco – St. Martins area.

Quaco Queen

Ships built in St. Martins sailed around the world for decades bringing prosperity and power to New Brunswick, and now, 148 years later, a piece of marine art history has been brought back home to Saint Martins. Join the Quaco Museum, as we  welcome home the restored figurehead from the ship – The Prince Victor.
