Impressive museum with many nicely-designed exhibits and very knowledgeable guides to escort you through the two levels of the museum. Located on the waterfront of beautiful, picturesque Lunenburg. more »
You can’t be in Lunenburg without visiting this fabulous fishery museum. It is so informative . The exhibits were so well done and explained throughout. more »
The wildlife display on the main floor is fun. It's a place where you can interact with the displays. I really liked the memorial for the fisherman who have died at sea. It's nice for family to have some closure.
We very much enjoyed the fisheries museum. It was much better than we ever expected.
