One of Shelburne’s great claims to fame is the town’s rich dory-building traditions; a skill which still survives today thanks to the Dory Shop Museum. Known for its exceptional strength, the Shelburne Dory was the preferred dory of Newfoundland, Gloucester and local fishermen, making it the most popular small craft in the Atlantic Provinces for almost a century. Learn how the town’s dory-makers rivaled their Lunenburg competitors by using the dory clip and witness the art of crafting these vessels first-hand. Wheelchair access is available on the lower level. Bus tours are welcome.
