Inside the main Exhibit at the Quaco Museum -women waited for their sailor husbands to return from the sea. …….sometimes, in vain.

Collections Policy

The Quaco Museum collects, conserves and displays objects that give insight to the heritage of the St. Martins area. Gifts of such objects to the Museum are always welcome, but must be made without condition, giving the Quaco Historical and Library Society ownership of the item. The Museum also accepts loans of objects for interpretation and display. Such loans are for a stated duration. We cannot accept loans for indefinite periods.

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.
