Musée acadien et Centre de recherch / Acadian Museum and Research Center

Cette propriété familiale qui date des années 1800 a une bonne ossature et elle dégage une énergie extraordinaire. Mais pour sentir le pouls du musée, il faut rencontrer les Acadiens et écouter leurs histoires.
Prenons, par exemple, Simon « gentilhomme » d'Entremont. Il fut le premier Acadien à faire partie de l'Assemblée législative de la Nouvelle-Écosse. Né en 1788, il apprit à lire et à écrire le français, l'anglais, le latin et le mi'kmaq sans recevoir d'éducation formelle.
Avant d'occuper son siège à l'Assemblée, on lui a demandé de prêter le Serment d'allégeance, dit le « Big Oath », et de répudier ses croyances dans le saint sacrifice de la messe et sa vénération des saints. Il refusa en déclarant : « J'avalerais plutôt un chien de mer la queue la première que de jurer ça. »
Le père de Simon, Benoni d'Entremont, était capitaine du « Bonaventure ». Lors d'un voyage de Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, des pirates ont saisi le bateau et envoyé l'équipage à terre. Benoni connaissait le montant d'alcool à bord et il savait qu'ils se saouleraient. Pendant la nuit, on aida au courageux capitaine à ramer silencieusement jusqu'au bateau pour chasser les pirates.
Saviez-vous ?
Le musée est plus qu'un musée. On y fait vivre les traditions de la courtepointe et du party de cuisine. L'espirit acadien est toujours vivant!

—————————————————
This homestead from the 1800s has "good bones" and great vibes. But the pulse of the museum is illustrated through the Acadians themselves—and their stories.
For example, meet Simon "Squire" d'Entremont, the first Acadian to be part of the Nova Scotia Legislature. Born in 1788, he had little formal education yet he learned how to speak and read in French, English, Latin and Mi'kmaq.
Before taking his seat in the legislature, Simon was asked to take the "Big Oath" and repudiate his belief in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the veneration of Saints. He refused, saying, "I would rather swallow a dogfish, tail first, than to swear to that."
Simon's father, Benoni d'Entremont, was captain of the "Bonaventure." On a trip from Sainte-Pierre et Miquelon, pirates seized the ship and sent everyone ashore. A good supply of liquor was aboard, so Benoni knew they would get hopelessly drunk. Through the night, with some help, the intrepid captain rowed with muffled oars back to the ship—and ousted the pirates.
Do you know?
This museum is more than just a museum. Here, traditions are celebrated from quilting bees to kitchen parties. The Acadian spirit lives on!
