Step into the history of Yarmouth’s Waterfront
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. Visit W.L. Sweeney Fisheries Museum for a unique and authentic hands-on experience!
