Things to see and do
Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens
Located at 441 St. George Street. The Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens balances the historical and botanical aspects of horticulture, complementing the rich tapestry of heritage in one of the oldest European settlements in North America. The themed gardens are linked by paths through other display areas including several plant collections, the largest being the Rose Collection which displays more than 230 cultivars in their historical context.
Fort Anne National Historic Site
Located at P.O. Box 9. As the focal point for French and British settlement and as the seat of government of Acadia and then Nova Scotia, Fort Anne National Historic Site played an important role in Canadian history. The site was the scene of numerous battles as France and England fought for control of North America in the 17th and 18th centuries. Both imperial powers considered the conquest of this fortified site as the key to domination of the part of eastern Canada known by the French as "Acadie" and by the British as "Nova Scotia."

North Hills Museum
Located at 5065 Granville Road. This small wood-framed house overlooking the Annapolis Basin was once the Rumsey farm and then the Amberman house before Robert Patterson, a retired banker, purchased it, named it North Hills, and filled it with his collection of English furniture, ceramics, silver and Georgian glass. When he died in 1974, Patterson bequeathed both the house and its collections to the Province. Visitors will see many fine examples of oak, mahogany and walnut furniture, 18th- and 19th-century English porcelain and 18th-century glass. North Hills is operated by the Annapolis Heritage Society for the Nova Scotia Museum.
