One of Fredericton’s most beautiful and historic areas, Officers’ Square was named one of the Top 10 Public Spaces in Canada! It was a centre of military activity when Fredericton was garrisoned by the British and Canadian Armies. During July and August, it is the site for outdoor summer concerts, the Changing of the Guard ceremony, daily outdoor theatre, and a variety of festivals and events throughout the year.

Concerts on Tuesday's & Thursdays all summer long. Beautiful place to stop & rest on walks in the downtown area. Several restaurants in the area. Next to a museum.

Officer's square is a beautiful part of the downtown and often hosts great events, but there is always a military show of force which makes a lot of gunshot noises.

Every Tuesday and Thursday evening during the Summer there is an outdoor concert following the Changing of the Guard. Just bring a lawn chair and relax. Lots of other activities held in this great place overlooking the Saint John River in downtown Fredericton.

Twice a day in the summer, there is a special ceremony held here - the Changing of the Guard. Definitely be here then, if you can! There are also plays, musical events, and more. This truly is a wonderful spot in lovely city of Fredericton.

Very nice place to go and just relax. Always a friendly place to meet people. Attractions are a common thing. Music shows and other forms of entertainment. Calm and peaceful.

This little park / green square flanked by a good looking colonial building enhances Fredericton and pleasant enough to walk past or enjoy when going to the museum but that is all. It does not warrant a specific visit. In high season there are "colonial...More

Warmer weather, anything from bands, to arts and crafts fair. And special times of festivities, beer gardens. Also, many restaurants, stores and taverns...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!
