We stopped in after a great day on the Margaree. The curator was so knowledgeable it was awesome. As we went through all the exhibits, she recalled all the interesting back stories that went along with everything.

Very informative. We also stopped at the salmon hatchery. Great amount of information. We came here to fish and of course check out the margaree river for trout. The margaree river is catch and release for salmon.

I am not a fisherman, but loved the completeness of this tribute to the Atlantic salmon. Complete with historical artifacts.

I received a personalized tour from Frances Hart whose parents and grandparents were involved in salmon fishing and flies. I learned so much from her, and you could tell that she lived the museum. Museum entry fee is a mere $2.00 but what I received...More
