Our stories. Yours to discover.

You’ll naturally encounter fascinating New Brunswick stories on your travels, no matter where you venture. Our towns and villages carry history in the people, language, landscape, and buildings. Our shorelines and their natural monuments are shaped by time itself. Even the trees in our forests are grand memories of time past. But when it comes to getting to know New Brunswick, you simply have to visit one of our museums and historic sites.

Whether educational, interactive, artistic, or just plain fun, New Brunswick museums are always more than just exhibits. They cover every conceivable interest for curious minds. Our museums celebrate nature, science, local history, industries, trades, art, and even food. Each one of our heritage museums provides visitors with the tales of our past, while contemporary exhibits bring insight to today’s cultural mosaic.
