Exhibits

Today the museum has a permanent exhibition, documentation centre with a giant screen for viewing films related to our history, and a walk through veranda designed to reflect the cozy sitting areas found in the private fishing camps along the river. There is also a temporary exhibition room, a gift shop that carries a variety of fishing related items, and the Lady Amherst Tea Room, where we serve homemade delicacies and light refreshments throughout the tourist season. The Atlantic Salmon Interpretation Centre is another unique attraction with an aquarium of small fry. In this room we educate our visitors about the life cycle of the Atlantic salmon, its habitat, and the conservation efforts that are being taken to preserve the Atlantic salmon world-wide.

Please visit the links dedicated to these attractions to learn more about them.
