Welcome to the museum!
The Friends of Craig Brook are proud to operate and sponsor the Atlantic Salmon Museum located on the campus of the Craig Brook National Fish Hatchery . The museum occupies the old icehouse building that is the oldest structure on the hatchery property. It is below the primary hatchery building towards Alamoosook lake.
The museum serves as an environmental and outreach center for the Friends of Craig Brook helping us to preserve and understand the long history of angling for Atlantic salmon. The museum houses a treasure of salmon angling artifacts ranging from its classic fly rod collection to an antique guide boat. In order to accommodate our growing collection and to allow for more community involvement, we have undertaken an expansion plan that will more than double our existing space. We are in the midst of a capital campaign to raise the additional funds required to complete our project. We have already raised more than $40,000 on our way to the $150,000 needed for completion.
We look forward to any and all support for our museum project as we seek to preserve the rich history of angling for Atlantic salmon and support the conservation mission of the Craig Brook hatchery. Please join or effort and view our on line calendar to confirm dates and times to visit the museum.
