Plan your visit

Grand-Pré National Historic Site

Grand-Pré National Historic Site is located near the town of Wolfville—a one-hour drive from Halifax, Nova Scotia, less than two hours from the Digby ferry (Nova Scotia) and a three-hour drive from both the Yarmouth ferry (Nova Scotia) and the city of Moncton, New Brunswick.

Plan to spend a few hours to a half-day if taking in one of our enhanced programs in July and August. Spend even a full day on site during one of our signature special events. If you are taking a self-guided tour, we suggest giving yourself one and a half to two hours — including a 22-minute multimedia film presentation.


Daily visitor fees, camping and program fees, and more. Free admission for youth.
