“Very interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We needed a short break from driving on our day between Halifax and Fredericton and this fit the bill perfectly! It is just a short drive from the highway (take exit 504 and turn north onto Main St, then turn right just past the park on Silver Lake onto Church St. and follow it to the left) and had a small admission charge ($3 ea). The attendant was a university student who seemed to know a great deal about the history of the carriage factory. She was also willing to learn more from any visitors who knew about the history of the area or the tools used in the factory. She offered a personal tour and asked how long we had to spend. She was willing to tailor the tour to our time frame. We were there for just over 1 hour, which seemed about right for this museum. The Carriage Factory operated for about 100 years, from 1855 to 1951, and was abandoned on its last day in production with everything in place as it had been used. Forty years later, in the 1990's, the owners donated it to the local heritage society & it was restored as a museum.
