W.L. Sweeney Fisheries Museum

The W. L. Sweeney Fisheries Museum was created by his son and daughters to tell the story of the men and women of Laurence Sweeney Fisheries Limited, of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. Step across the threshold and back in time. Explore the Sweeney marine heritage through unique exhibits: a simulation of a traditional fishing wharf, complete with fishing, processing and ship repair sheds, wharf decks and even a coastal freighter. Nothing is roped off in this interactive museum - come in for a unique and authentic experience, hands-on!
