This addition to the ASF main office is a great opportunity to learn more about the elusive Atlantic Salmon, it's history in Atlantic Canada and the world. My father had been a guide to anglers for over 50 years, and to Lee & Joan Wuff, and I stopped fishing for this fish in 1998 as a conservation effort, due to... More

OK, so this isn't the New England or Ripley's aquarium. What it is is a beautiful, rustic exhibition on salmon set in the tranquil Chamcook forest. The buildings themselves are stunning: log cabins with exhibits on all things salmon. There's a live salmon pool including an underwater viewing room, as well as a saltwater touch tank (it's a bit small,... More

The Nature Centre itself was beautiful. Log buildings nestled in a forested area with a stream running through it. The salmon are in a huge tank that has the natural stream running through as the water source. The information available on tablets through the centre is excellent and there are interpreters there to answer more questions. The fish in the... More

We were the only visitors in the mid-afternoon of Saturday, July 11. Young female guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Facility is modern, clean and very attractive. Live salmon display is awesome.

Well put together. Boards inside a gazebo explaining the Salmon. We come from an area where one can see the wild salmon return to span in the fall. This explained the Atlantic Salmon run. Camp site right next to this site and one can have an ocean view site for you trailer.

The staff was friendly and professional, the exhibits were very informative. It would expand the experience if the exhibit went into more deatail on the research functions performed on site. The cost was modest, and there were picnic tables there we had our lunch at. The restrooms were well taken care of, and clean.

Very cool place with a great staff and interesting overall, however to be critical of the place at all the person that decided to call it the Interpretive Centre should get an F at best as this place is almost impossible to find on the internet with any attempt to google Atlantic Salmon museums or observation in general always pointing...
