If you are into fishing this little gem is not to be missed. Filled with various displays of antique rods, reels, flies, and all manner of salmon and trout gear. You really get the flavor of salmon fishing on the Margaree.

We stopped in after a great day on the Margaree. The curator was so knowledgeable it was awesome. As we went through all the exhibits, she recalled all the interesting back stories that went along with everything.

Very informative. We also stopped at the salmon hatchery. Great amount of information. We came here to fish and of course check out the margaree river for trout. The margaree river is catch and release for salmon.

I am not a fisherman, but loved the completeness of this tribute to the Atlantic salmon. Complete with historical artifacts.
