New Camp Norway Exhibit at The Fisheries Museum of The Atlantic in Lunenburg
The Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic honours the relationship between the fishing community of Lunenburg and the displaced Norwegian whalers of WWII that took refuge at Camp Norway in its Fishermen & Wartime Stories Exhibit. The mutual respect of seamen of the North Atlantic was the bonding factor in these relationships that lasted far beyond wartime.
The Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic is located on 68 Bluenose Drive, in Lunenburg, NS. The museum is open from mid-May until mid-October, and the hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The Camp Norway display is on the 2nd Floor in the Stormy Seas Gallery.
