We visited the museum on a rainy day and were the only ones in it. A bit sad as it has good displays and offers a short, concise history of Acadian settlement and expulsion from New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.

A well organized museum giving the history of Acadians from their early days in la nouvelle france, the deportation, and the renewal of the Acadian culture to this very day. All explanations (texts and audio) are in both English and French. The museum is just the right size, not too big. I was extremely impressed with the quality of exhibits.... More

since we came to Moncton to search Acadian history, this was the place to go. Well displayed and the narratives confirmed some of what we new and helped with new information (leads). Highly recommend a visit. Even if your not Acadian.

The staff at the Acadian Museum is by far the most knowledgeable people on Acadian history. They train the student staff here very well and are always willing to go the extra mile.

Interesting topics that change on a regular basis. Staff are very informative and layout of displays allows ample time to take everything in separately. Everything has a hint of Acadian history tucked inside the displays. A treat for all Acadians and their heritage. A hidden jewel on the campus of the Universite de Moncton.

I don't consider Moncton the go-to place for activities, but this museum was interesting if you like history. Everything is in English and French and it's easy to follow. They did have some odd separate exhibit about Zidine (yep, the footballer) and I didn't understand the connection, basically just a movie, but if you like soccer then maybe you will... More

I had not visited this museum before,had company from B.C on a rainy day decided to visit. To my surprise we all found the information interesting and help us understand some of the hardships and experiences incountered by the Acadians. Very well done, the staff pleasant and accommodating.

It was a rainy day. So my wife and I explored the Acadian museum. The dioramas and explanatory exhibits are excellent and very educational. We appreciated the exhibits being expressed in both English and French. The highlight of our visit was the two post-graduate students free personal information about the Acadian history. They were working at the desk but had... More
