We have attended many events at Officer Square. It is a beautiful location and easily accessible. Officer Square hosts alot of local events as well as local artists. Check out the City of Fredericton fb page or website for details on upcoming events.

We love the free concerts at Officers' Square which are usually held two nights a week during summer months. Over the years they have upgraded the square by building public washrooms and a larger stage. There is a bit of controversy going on at the...More

Officer's Square is open to the public all the time. As for the museum, I do not know but you could check with the City of Fredericton on-line. Good luck and I hope you enjoy your visit!
