The museum and staff are devoted to preserving and exhibiting the history of the house, the once important community of Partridge Island, the Parrsborough Shore and the community of Parrsboro.

The museum seeks to interpret the original native occupation, the Acadian contribution, the seafaring, lumbering and shipbuilding of the region, as well as the lives of the succession of owners of the house, including Sir Charles Tupper's life at the Ottawa House. In fact, it was Sir Charles who named his summer residence the Ottawa House By The Sea while negotiating the articles of Confederation.
The genealogy section houses over twelve hundred Parrsboro and area school registers along with numerous local family files.
