As a result of the PBAPA’s efforts, the Nova Scotia Lighthouse Interpretive Centre was established in 1997. The Centre is an educational and resource tool for the dissemination of information and knowledge about the Port Bickerton Lighthouse and in particular and Nova Scotia lighthouses in general.
It occupies the restored second lighthouse, built in 1930, and the nearby lightkeeper’s residence, built in 1960. The Centre has been enhanced further with 3.7 kilometers of nature trails, and the entire site now forms part of the Port Bickerton Lighthouse Beach Park. The Nova Scotia Lighthouse Interpretive Centre is open annually from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., 7 days a week, from June 15th to September 30th.
