|Facility:||Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic|
|Description:||The breath-taking Lunenburg waterfront is the home of the world-class Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic. The Museum commemorates the fishing heritage of the Atlantic coast of Canada. Housed in brightly painted red buildings, with floating vessels at wharfside, the Museum offers a host of attractions, a maritime gift shop and restaurant.
Get your sea legs on the schooner Theresa E. Connor and talk with "old salts" who fished the North Atlantic. Gently touch starfish and other marine creatures in the aquarium's fantastic viewing tank. The Museum is filled with exhibits, displays and activities. Help with the launching of a schooner model and feel the thrill of watching a vessel "slide down the ways".
Visit the boat shop - or, spend a bit of time hooking a mat or quilting in the Life in Fishing Communities exhibit. The Ice House Theatre shows films throughout the day.
Canada's most famous schooner, the historic Bluenose, is celebrated in an exhibit that contains the world's largest collection of Bluenose artifacts. The Fishermen's Memorial room is located on the second floor, offering an evocative tribute to those lost at sea from the port of Lunenburg. Plan to complement your visit with a meal or refreshments at the Museum's restaurant, The Old Fish Factory.
If you've never been to sea, the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic is the place to start. If you have been to sea, this is the place to reacquaint yourself!
