Built in 1965 from hundred-year-old hand hewn logs by experts in the Madawaska Valley. The museum is located in Combermere just 30 minutes from The Deakins Bed and Breakfast.

The pioneer museum is filled to the brim with artifacts and the ingenious inventions which enabled this area’s pioneering forefathers to survive in a tough rural environment. Its hundreds of donated artifacts from local homes and farms are representative of life in this country’s early days.  Enjoy seeing a cobbler’s shop, a blacksmithing display, and farming, carpentry and bush work implements. Glimpse the home life of these pioneers as you pass by kitchen, parlour and bedroom exhibits. Included is a player piano that works.
