    Pubnico is not only home to the above mentioned museum but also to a very interesting theme village. Members of the widespread d'Entremont family will show you how life was in the late 19th and early 20th century. There are original houses of that time in which women dressed in old-fashioned clothes cook the delicious cucumber relish that you must not forget buying. There are craftsmen building boats and explaining what purpose they were used for. There is the smell of drying salted fish, of flowers on the lawns and of the sea nearby.
    I spent more than 1 1/2 hours there, most of the time talking to a woman of the d'Entremont family who was so nice as to give me the secret recipe of cucumber relish... :)
    In case you want to taste it, too, jars can be bought at the souvenir shop on top of the hill.

    The Acadian Museum is a must-see in Pubnico. Bernice d'Entremont will show you around in the rooms of the museum where artifacts and handicrafts from the 19th century are displayed. This would not be too interesting were it not for Mrs d'Entremont. She belongs to the founding family of Pubnico and is thus able to tell interesting facts about nearly every piece in the museum - how it got there, who made it, who owned it, and what its importance for Pubnico was. Talking to her is highly interesting and made my stay at the museum a great time.
