Plan your visit
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.
Visitors Reception and Interpretation Centre
The Visitors Reception and Interpretation Centre houses a multimedia theatre, an exhibit hall, a gift shop, a multipurpose room, art gallery, and administration area along with other visitors' facilities such as restrooms, picnic area, and the new Harvest Moon Trail way.
Parking on site
The parking lot in front of the Visitor Information Centre is reserved for visitors to the national historic site and for those staying at the oTENTik.
Harvest Moon Trail users, whether pedestrians, cyclists or others, should park in the designated parking lot at 2242 Grand-Pré Road, just across the road from the NHS. This parking lot is located only a few feet from the official trailhead.
2205 Grand-Pré Road
