Lots of fun to take the container with the baby lobsters in the water and pour down the tube into the rocks below the pier. (They are safe and sheltered there from predators)

Great info about lobsters and NS fishery. They also have excellent version of a Swampscott dory and explanation of how it was used.

The museum was a definite but there was a definite lack of guides with info. Guides were behind the front desk or generally inaccessible. It is very much a self-guided tour and detailed questions, when you found a guide were often my answered.

Anyone familiar with fishing, gear, and catch might enjoy this the most as there isn't a lot of info provided in the write-ups posted around the museum.

Admission is $8 for adults, $6 for seniors, $3 for kids, and $20 for a family.

I stopped by here on my way to Halifax Airport after getting off the ferry between PEI and NS. It's a pretty small museum. The space is composed of the first floor of three small houses. They have some nice exhibition of all kinds of equipment and tools used by fisherman, but the stuffs are not very well organized. Outside the house you get a beautiful view of the port. They also set up some outdoor boards displaying interesting information about fish species, lighthouses, and canneries. My main complaint is the ticket price. They asked for 8 dollars per adult. I think the reasonable price should be 6 dollars considering the amount of all they have to show. But perhaps the ticket sales will help the economy of the small fishery village as Pictou is.

Great visit with Savannah & others (sorry forget the others' names). Full of info and eager to share. Learn about the life cycle of lobsters and more. You can even hold a live lobster! Highly recommend this location.
