New Brunswick Internment Camp Heritage Museum

The only museum in Canada dealing with Second World War internment of Jews, Germans, Italians, and Canadians; it has over 600 artifacts (paintings, furniture, wood carvings, photos, and more) and a scale model of the New Brunswick Internment Camp. The project was born when Ed Caissie, a Minto teacher, was developing alternate programs for at-risk students. There is an historic walking trail at the original site in Ripples, 32 km (20 mi.) from Fredericton on Route 10.
