The Shag Harbour incident has been chronicled in books and on television and has captured the imaginations of UFO enthusiasts and others.
The Nickersons says the society hopes to continually add material about the incident to the museum as funds become available. They plan in the near future to commission interpretative panels at the site.
The museum also includes items and information about the history of Shag Harbour.
The Nickersons says there have also been people interested in joining the society. Dues are $5 annually. Members are welcome to participate in meetings and will receive the SHIS newsletter.

Visitors are able to also obtain an official Canada Post cancelation stamp, which will be used for any postcards or letters mailed at the "UFO Museum".
Further west on the road, visitors can visit the site of the UFO incident, viewing the harbour towards the sound where the alleged crash took place. It provides a good spot for one to contemplate what it was like that evening on October 4th, 1967 observing the strange phenomenon along with the rest of the witnesses dumb founded with the spectacle.
