Right on the waterfront, this museum has a one-two punch, offering exhibits and activities both inside an historic building and in a set of former fishing vessels tied up at the wharf ready to board and explore. The intriguing spaces include a working boat shed and a scallop-shucking house. Sometimes, the famous Bluenose is even tied up here, Lunenburg being her home port. Inside, kids will enjoy the aquarium and touch tank, as well as the sea monster exhibit. Twice daily, kids can help with the launch of a model schooner. Adults will want to tuck into meatier material like the history of fishing and shipbuilding, and a section on the rum runners of prohibition days.
