  • Great little museum and Canada's ONLY lobster hatchery run by volunteers. You can tell they put a lot of time and effort into the place and they love doing it. Pay the $5 and "adopt" a lobster; very interesting for both kids & adults.
  • We learned SO much about lobsters at this museum. The lovely Ruby was so enthusiastic and informative. We are truly thankful for the information she provided us (including a relish place to eat!) Worth the stop.
  • Great interactive displays! Go learn about the hard work and innovation behind the fish on your plate.
  • Lots of interesting live lobsters (different colours) and lobster larvae here. Heard it's the only lobster hatchery opened to the public so it's a must see! Staff were friendly and informative. The adopt a lobster program ($5) is a must do here and they will give a certificate and send you and email of the lobster you adopted when they release it.
  • An interesting place to learn about lobsters and their conservation efforts.
