Visiting a fisheries museum is a safer and more economical way to experience life on the water than building a summer home in the town water tower. Safely enjoy seafaring lore with today's Groupon to the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic in Lunenburg. Choose between the following options:
• For $5, you get an individual pass (a $10 value).
• For $10, you get a family pass for two adults and up to four children aged 17 years or younger; children 5 and younger are admitted free (a $22 value).
The Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic preserves and advocates for Atlantic Canada's seafaring heritage at its Lunenburg waterfront location, a dedicated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Individuals and families roam three floors of exhibits, including a showcase of the new shipbuilding program commemorating the restoration of Nova Scotia's Bluenose II fishing schooner, the reincarnation of its famously undefeated ancestor, the original Bluenose. The wharves let visitors step onto seafaring vessels such as the museum's flagship Theresa E. Connor, a salt-bank schooner built in 1938, and listen to weathered wayfarers spin yarns about life at sea. Watch a North Atlantic cod climb the aquatic corporate ladder at the aquarium, or tickle beach creatures at the Tidal Touch Tank. For a cinematic experience, the Ice House Theatre educates through films such as The Stow Away, documenting the trials of a young stowaway aboard a ship full of sailors and completely devoid of Kraft Dinner. Boatswains can conclude the day perusing mementos at the Salt Store Gift Shop or dining at The Old Fish Factory Restaurant.
