The New Brunswick Museum in Saint John at Market Square is a great place to take the family for the day. The displays are top notch and not to be missed. There is plenty for everyone to see, and there is always something new to see. There are also interactive displays for the kids to play with.

A great review of the history of the earth from a geological perspective. Outstanding presentations of the history of Saint John. Lighting on the displays needs to be updated.
