We enjoyed our stop and tour of the Prime Berth Fishing Museum. The inside part of the museum is small but the outside part is full of interesting exhibits.

Don't overlook this excellent look to the fishing history of the area. It will be the best $5 you spent on your trip. Great for any age.

I had a great time at the museum. Lots of local history there tells a lot of fishing history and how people in Newfoundland relied so much on the fishing industry.
