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

In April, our family traveled to Fredericton for the day, from Maine where we live. My wife and granddaughter shopped, and two grandsons and I played tourist. 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...

The York-Sunbury Historical Society Museum is a typical regional museum. We found it to be a nice overview of the history of the area - there is a short film to watch and a number of exhibit areas to view that detail a wide variety of topics and time periods. Because we're not from the area, we weren't sure what... More
