The Hector Heritage Quay is a museum built to honor and preserve the passengers aboard the ship Hector.  It has been called one of Nova Scotia's most important heritage developments.

The Quay houses an interpretive centre and a walk through tour of displays depicting life onboard the Hector and early settlement of the Pictou area.

Also, a full scale reproduction of the ship Hector is being built on site in much the same way it would have been built in the 1700's
