Navigate Galleries and Vessels to discover the stories and legends of a rich, diverse fishing heritage that is woven into our cultural fabric. Within the walls of a former fish processing plant, our galleries tell the stories of Bluenose, the Mi’kmaq Fishery, Stormy Seas, the Banks Fishery, Inshore Fisheries and Community Life. The romance and beauty of a sea that competes with the cold hardships of life hanging on a fish hook will be revealed by passionate and accessible interpreters as they bring the stories of the fishery to life.


Adventure, excitement and the experience of a lifetime await you at the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic! The Museum is huge, with floating vessels at our wharves, an aquarium and a large exhibit complex. From mid-May to mid-October, each day is filled with an assortment of activities, which can include a thrilling launch of a model schooner to guided tours to learning how to hook mats or spin wool.

The Museum is as much about the stories that people share, as it is about artifacts and exhibits. Heritage Interpreters, including retired fishermen and captains, generously share their experiences with visitors. Our schooner Theresa E. Connor and trawler Cape Sable come alive when visitors have a yarn with our Old Salts.

The Museum offers something for everyone, whether you’re interested in local crafts and culture, boats or history. A children’s play area, an aquarium with enchanting glimpses of fish from the deep, hands-on activities and an air-conditioned theatre; round out an extensive selection of exhibits.
