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.

When in town for the weekend, we saw the officer's review (which was wonderful), as well as two free concerts. There were many other events- we picked up a flyer at the NB tourism station in the park for a schedule.

We were walking by and was able to see a practice session for the army in progress. We felt lucky to be a part of something so patriotic (they performed the national anthem).

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!
