WHAT WE OFFER

Explore a site that’s changing our understanding of early Colonial life in North America.

Start at our Visitor Centre. Its introductory film and exhibit will set the scene and introduce you to the Colony’s cast of characters. Upstairs you’ll find our Archaeology Lab where trained staff process the thousands of artifacts unearthed each week. Then, head out with a local guide. They’ll help you de-code our ongoing excavations and (from Monday-Friday) introduce you to our archaeologists. Stroll our heritage gardens and don’t miss our recreated 17th century kitchen where you can touch and taste the daily life of Ferryland’s first settlers.

Regular admission includes guided tour and access to our visitor centre, conservation lab, archaeological site, and 17th-century kitchen and gardens. Family and youth admissions include FREE rental of our Baltimore Backpacks. Bilingual self guided tours always available and bilingual guided tours are available upon request.

CHECK OUT WHAT WE’VE DISCOVERED.

Our work has unearthed a portion of Calvert’s mansion, the remains of a bakery/brewhouse, cobblestone street, warehouse, forge, well, sea wall, a sea-flushed privy and close to two million artifacts. Pretty impressive considering archaeologists have uncovered just over a third of Calvert’s original 4 acre site.
