We loved our tour of the museum! Because of covid restrictions there were very few people in the museum. For us it was like a private tour and we stayed for about 2 hours. I would highly recommend a visit if you are in Lunenburg. The staff were very friendly and helpful. You

Great place to spend an hour or 2 on a rainy day. The storyteller was very entertaining. The staff were very friendly and helpful, to the point of opening a loading door at the back of the museum, so we could take pictures of Bluenose II without getting our cameras all wet.

Lunenburg to me was shopping and restaurants but I am so glad we took the time to visit the Fisheries Museum on this last trip to Nova Scotia. 3 floors plus 2 ships to explore with so many amazing people to guide you and answer questions. We were extremely fortunate to visit

We are so glad you enjoyed your visit to the Fisheries Museum. You WERE lucky to catch Ocearch - an amazing project indeed! It is always nice to receive compliments about our staff from guests. And hearing that a 16 year old enjoyed his visit so much is wonderful. Thank you for taking the time to post your great review!
