McCulloch House Museum is at 100 Old Haliburton Rd.; visitors should check in at the Hector Exhibit Centre & Archives just in front of the museum. This early 19th-century Scottish-style house was the home of Dr. Thomas McCulloch, his wife Isabella and their family. Dr. McCulloch was a reverend, a naturalist and a proponent of equal access to education.
His large collection of bird specimens can be seen on the first floor of the house, along with exhibits about the history of Pictou; family possessions, including Dr. McCulloch's desk; and details about the reverend's educational pursuits. A number of the exhibits have interactive elements. A staff member provides information about Dr. McCulloch and the Pictou area and is available to answer any questions.
