This is a very neat museum that is as much about the history of the "Margaree" as it is about salmon fishing.
When people travel the Ceilidh Trail ,and the Cabot Trail, they often do not allow enough time to travel inland along both sides of the Margaree River , and to see such things as this museum nor the bigger attraction which is that Margaree Fish Hatchery ,which, by the way, is super place for kids of any age .
Many of the salmon pools have signs and a distinct path to travel to the pool .
They are like going on neat 1/2 to 1 hour hour little causal hikes . Many pools have benches , while intended for the fishermen, are sort of public benches . Fly Fishermen and women tend to be "characters : and can be anywhere from anywhere in the world. So always say "hello " .
It can be a real experience to watch these folks , both men and women , cast their lines and even better when they land a fish .Mornings till maybe 10 a.m and any evening after 5p.m. are likely the best times. There will maybe 1 or 2 cars at any one pool at any one time . Also a grey spot for photography .
They area happens to be a good central point for a trip of Cape Breton . You can swim in the river in the morning and the ocean in the afternoon , You can hike in the morning sunrise and roast hot dogs at the beach while the sun sets right on the horizon view of maybe 50 miles .
