The Atlantic Salmon Museum is a non-profit organization located on the banks of the Main South West Miramichi River in the Village of Doaktown. The museum houses a very extensive collection of artifacts and interpretive displays that tell the story of the sport of fly fishing as well as the history of the Atlantic salmon. Their artifacts include an extensive array of original paintings, sculptures, salmon flys, rods, reels, and a large library of books and journals. A visitor favourite is the Hall of Fame, dedicated to those very special individuals (conservationists, anglers, guides, outfitters, fly tiers, writers and artists) in whose lives the Atlantic salmon has played a significant role. The museum also boasts a small aquarium, gift shop and banquet space.
During the summer months, children can learn more about the sport of fly fishing, conservation, canoeing and wilderness skills at the ASM’s Come Play On Our River Camp. The camp runs between late June and mid August.
