    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This museum has everything to do with the 1967 UFO sighting in Shag Harbour. You can view collected memorabilia, watch tv programs about the incident and prehaps even meet a witness! Very interesting!

    About 3 hours from Halifax, drive west on the 103 to Barrington, go straight through the only set of lights and drive 7 minutes more to Shag Harbour. From Yarmouth drive 30 minutes on Highway 103 East to the Pubnico/Woods Harbour exit on your right, the take a left at gas station and drive 30 more minutes to Shag Harbour.

    In shag Harbour about 7 minutes from Barrington you will find the Chapel Hill Museum and Sea Tower. The museum itself is very interesting with lots of local history. On a picture perfect day you can see 5 lighthouses from the Sea tower (the building once served the community as its Baptist Church... you can climb up the tower and see all over the area!
    A must-see spot!

    In and around Barrington there a a lot of local wharves. My favorite is the Shag Harbour wharf. The fisherman are really friendly and always happy to stop and have a chat with the tourists and maybe if you ask around you could even get a boat ride out of it! The wharf is a very scenic spot, lots of Lobster boats water, and islands :)
