Adult/Family Tours

Tours of our heritage building and artifacts are great for locals and tourists alike.  Individual guided tours are covered in the entrance fee.

For the 2023 season, we offer Connie’s Guided Tour: A Wee Historic Walk of Montague as outlined below.  

A Wee Historic Walk of Montague

Join us for a wee historic walk of Montague.  This approximately 2 km walk takes 1.0 hour (depending on how long we talk!) and there are some inclines for anyone with knee problems.  We highlight some of Montague’s history on either side of the river close to the bridge.  

An added bonus is that some of the businesses housed in buildings we visit are offering discounts to participants while on tour.  

Beginning outside the Museum building, this walking tour will take place on Thursday mornings at 9:30am for July and August.  Canceled if raining.  

Please pre register at as there is a number cap for the tour. Tour fee includes entrance to the Museum.

Note: The Historic Walks are now over for this 2023 season. See you next year!

School Classroom Events

The Garden of the Gulf Museum invites all teachers to sign up for a new in-classroom presentation this September and October.  Can be adapted to all age groups. There is no fee for this experience, as we want to share our love of history with you and your students.  However, a donation would be greatly appreciated.  

Our presentation is by our Curator, Connie Spencer, is approximately one hour and touches quickly about our historic Museum building and then goes into a ‘guess what it is’ show and tell with artifacts from the Museum’s extensive collection. The children will also be given an opportunity to hold a few artifacts.   

Please contact us if your school would be interested:  902-838-2467 (to Sept 15 Only) OR
