Fisherman's Life Museum

From the crackle of wood burning in the cook stove, to the smell of the saltwater breeze, come experience the warmth and welcome of Nova Scotia’s Eastern Shore in a fishing family’s home.

Situated in Jeddore Oyster Pond (off Route 7 at Oyster Pond), Fisherman's Life Museum once belonged to Ervin Myers, his wife Ethelda and their 13 daughters. Built in the early 1900s, this charming homestead was typical for an inshore fisherman and, like many other families who resided along Nova Scotia’s shores, the Myers made their living off both the land and sea; fishing throughout the summer and working the woods in the winter. Learn how to hook rugs and see how the family cooked meals on a wood cook stove. Hear stories about the land, the sea and the life people led on the Eastern Shore in the early decades of the 1900s. Bus tours are welcome. There is partial wheelchair access only.
