Description

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 on Highway 7, 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. Like many other families who resided along Nova Scotia’s shores, the Myers family 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. Dogs are welcome on the museum grounds.
