“New Brunswick Museum Offers Rocks, Art, History in a Unique Fashion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We visited New Brunswick Museum because we were told that they had a wonderful geology exhibit. I almost walked right past it. I've seen so many displays with this is the Jurassic, Triassic, etc. with a round globe that I didn't realize they had used it in a wonderfully unique way. Each era highlighted explained what was going on with the continent(s), i.e. Pangaea, on to current, including collisions, extinction events. They also had specific rocks that showed how you would identify the era and the fossil life found in the area during that time period.

New Brunswick Museum also has a collection of area artists with some very lovely works. Another collection came from a local woman who found specific rare pieces useful in daily life including clothing, furniture, jewelry, pottery, dishes, from a large variety of places. The downstairs area had history about the logger camps. I couldn't believe how they bunked together--I guess body heat really matters when you're cold.

New Brunswick Museum is easily found in the mall, with parking below the building. Mall restaurants can offer lunch and snacks and drinks.

Restrooms available and clean. Gift shops has a nice selection.

Seniors get a reduced rate.
