Trip Advisor Rating Based on 11 Reviews

Come visit one of the oldest stone
buildings on Cape Breton Island. “The Forge,” built between 1780 and 1800, was an important enterprise on Isle Madame. Step back to a time
when shipbuilding flourished and local captains sailed all over the globe.
Experience a working forge, and peruse a collection of tools and artifacts that
tell some of the stories of Isle Madame.

 

The LeNoir Forge Museum is part of the
LeNoir Landing site, which also houses a genealogy centre, community archives,
a boat barn containing displays and information on our seafaring past, a gift
shop, and other shanties used for exhibits. Chat with our bilingual interpreters
and take part in on-site programs and activities.
