Fredericton is beautiful. People were friendly and outgoing, the streets easy to ramble. We enjoyed the music in officer's square and the Beaverbrook Art Gallery. The gallery was small but lovely, the Off the Grid collection really fun and absorbing.

Unfortunately many... More

I love Beaverbrook Art Gallery. We usually go once a summer because we have a summer residence in St. Andrews. The exhibitions are always changing and interesting.

If you are going to be in NB or travelling through plan to stop here. This is a Gallery worthy of Montreal/Toronto/Boston. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff.

If you have mobility issues good luck trying to view this gallery. Although all the right ramps and lifts are in place no one will point them out to you or operate them for you (They are not ones that can be operated by one self.) After enduring many sets of stairs you may finally spy the handicap entrance/exit where... More
