Museum Closure

Fisherman's Life Museum is currently closed to visitors. Work is underway to improve infrastructure and enhance the visitor experience for when the site does reopen to the public. Until then, please stay in touch and follow our progress through museum social channels. 

Museum staff are working ‘behind the scenes’ to develop new programs and events for visitors that showcase the stories unique to this site and to the history of the inshore fishery along the Eastern shore. Improvements are also being made to the site’s infrastructure. Upgrades to our internet and lighting systems will improve accessibility and safety for both staff and visitors. Roofing projects for the Myers family home, now the museum, and the fish house have provided new cedar shakes that enhance the historic look and feel of these iconic buildings. These changes will help ensure the long-term sustainability and stewardship of this provincial museum site and its importance to Nova Scotia’s fishing and rural heritage.

We encourage you to keep up-to-date on these and other projects and news about Fisherman’s Life Museum by following us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
