We are happy to welcome you back to the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic. We have been working to create a safe experience for you and our staff. Check out our “Know before you go” guide to help prepare you for your visit.
Now closed for the season, we look forward to welcoming you back May 2021.
The breath-taking Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic provides the ultimate waterfront experience for the entire family! Enjoy thrilling activities, a fascinating aquarium, a fishing schooner and trawler, boats, films and exhibits! Visitors can have a yarn with Old Salts, have a delightful meal, shop and experience the best of Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic is proud to be the home of Bluenose II.
We're quite easy to find, and once here, it's even easier to stay. Lunenburg abounds in fine accommodations, restaurants, services, stores, boutiques and nooks and crannies.
Visiting the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic is a fun event for everyone. Plan to spend a lot of time browsing our exhibits and aquarium, or exploring the decks and passageways of real ships at dockside. Please note that our wharf and vessel areas have rather uneven walking surfaces! We recommend wearing comfortable footwear.
An on-site restaurant makes taking a break as easy as pie.
