The museum has three floors of exhibits which unveil the stories of our rich fishing heritage. The importance of the fishery as a way of life dates back to the Mi’kmaq fishery and is explored in the First Fishers Exhibit. Each gallery reveals a new aspect of the fishery, its hardships, the pride, the development of the fishery, and its spinoffs, plus the discovery of the importance of ocean preservation and the tremendous work being done to protect our marine environment.

Step on board our flag ship schooner, Theresa E. Connor and discover a fisher’s way of life. Sit in on a daily presentation, enjoy a guided tour, or lend a hand with the model schooner launch demonstration.
