We really enjoy touring museums all over Canada and the United States and have been through some real gems but this one unfortunately was a very dull stone. The exhibits ran helter skelter throughout the two floors and were displayed in very haphazard ways that made no sense. Some of the display rooms had folding metal chairs placed here and... More

We paid to see this museum to have something to do in a downpour. There was a good film about the history of the area. The museum is divided into various rooms for different periods. There are computer stations with informative videos in most rooms. We took our time in each room and learned a lot about the history of... More

This museum was better than I expected, as it doesn't look like much from the outside. Admission was reasonable, I think it was $10 for two adults and a child. They have a 42-pound frog, and a related game for kids to play which involves finding all the little toy frogs hidden in the museum. There were quite a few... More

The building is the actual barracks that housed the soldiers in the 1800's. There are many displays throughout the building that tell the history of the people dating back to the "First Nations People",the "Loyalists", the Soldiers, and the "Acadians". There is also a room which houses the First World War uniforms/weapons/medals and a representation of one of the trenches... More

Limited exhibitions and general information about the area. On the day we arrived there was a function and the single staff for some reason was a little confused. The $5 admission fee is the correct amount for such a small site. Good place to learn some of the area history. There was a lot of construction in the area and... More

One of the places we visited was the Fredericton Region Museum. This is a non-profit museum with only one full-time staff member. A small admission fee was charged and donations are accepted. This...
