Memory Lane is an ideal group tour destination, either for a day trip exploration combined with other sites, or as a stop-over going east to Liscomb, Sherbrooke Village and Cape Breton, or returning west to Halifax and the International Airport.
Our parking lot is spacious and easily accommodates more than one large tour bus. Passengers can disembark in front of the Village’s entrance, through the Hosking Store.
Our modern and spacious washroom facilities are conveniently located in the Hosking Store and Cookhouse. Wheelchair accessible washroom and family change room also located in the Hosking Store.
All buildings on site are wheel chair accessible, although some entrances are narrow and can have a small bump where the ramp meets the heritage building. Staff are happy to assist with this. Key buildings of interest, including the Giftshop, General Store, Cookhouse, Garage, Antique Vehicles, School and Church are within a 2-5 minute walk. Other buildings require more walking. Resting benches are positioned throughout the Village.
Wherever possible we will try to tailor your visit to suit curriculum and age level and needs. Depending on the availability of volunteers, the number of students (we prefer a maximum of 7 students per group) and the students / chaperone ratio, we can offer a variety of hands-on interactive stations.
