The Museum of LBMCOC Turns 18!

On May 24, 1997 the Logy Bay-Middle Cove-Outer Cove Museum opened its doors for the very first time. A great deal of work went into the opening of this museum by a dedicated group of volunteers. We have grown substantially since that day in '97, having accumulated many artifacts from the community. We have since moved to a larger space, which is beautifully designed to represent all the elements of people's lives in LBMCOC; school, church, agriculture, sports, fishery, military and lifestyles. 

Please join us on Sunday, May 24, 2015 to celebrate eighteen years of operation. The open-house will run from 2:00-4:30pm, and light refreshments will be served. Admission is free, and there is plenty of parking available. We are located at 744 Logy Bay Road, behind the Town Hall. 

There are plenty of unique and peculiar things to see here. Below are a few examples of the artifacts we have on display.


Blow torch, c. 1900s


Premoette camara, c. 1920s

We hope to see lots of people here for the celebration. If you have any questions regarding the event please contact Katie at 726-5272 or lbmcocmuseum(at)gmail.com.
