Most tourists would not know how beautiful the old Officers Square was with the rose gardens and water fountain, however, it is still a really nice place to visit and you must take a tour of the museum. Not expensive and loads of local history

I only have been at the square, mostly in the winter. Reason being that my wife and I love to use their outdoor skating oval. Too bad some people don't know how to read as it clearly states that playing hockey on it is forbidden but that is for another review. The area is always very clean even after an... More

The afternoon "tatoo" of the Guard was fun to photograph and we even got to inspect the troops. Very nice to see .

The guides in period costumes were well informed. We saw the living quarters above the artists' shops as well as smaller building across the square. The soldiers were supposed to have had a formation but couldn't in the rain. If you stop by the city hall/visitor's bureau first they will give you a parking pass for the whole day

Took the family to Officer's Square where we were impressed with the people working there; they all had in-depth knowledge of the history and events in Fredericton surrounding the square. They let us try on the uniforms, lay in the beds and see the garrison and solitary confinement areas. Very 'tactile' for younger kids.

Very interesting look back into the military history of Fredericton!the museum is a collaboration from the Loyalists time to present day. I found the clothing and instruments used back then quite interesting. There was also a area in the museum that housed toys from the 1800's to present day. Actors portraying people of each era were on hand in the... More

This is a well preserved and lovingly displayed site in downtown Fredericton. We enjoyed seeing young men dressed in period uniforms. We were able to take excellent photos. The history is very interesting and is well relayed to the visitor.

My friend was quite excited to see the different shops here. There are a handful of small art boutiques built into the building, but only about five or so, and it seemed like there could have been many more. Maybe we were there on a slow day. The shops had nice stuff, mostly geared toward women, so I can't really... More
