Overview
More
The Fredericton Region Museum is a small not-for-profit history museum located in Officers' Square, the heart of Downtown Fredericton!! It exhibits the history of Fredericton in 12 galleries and is the home of the taxidermy remains of the Coleman Frog! Some exhibit themes include Native, Acadian, Planters, Medical, Military and Loyalist history as well as an 18 minute orientation video that tells the history of central New Brunswick. There are over 700 artefacts on display ranging from farm implements to fine art. Operated by the York Sunbury Historical Society, the museum has a small paid staff. Dedicated volunteers, summer students and interns do most of the gallery work. The time that it takes to visit is dependent on the visitor; some stay for 30 minutes while others stay for hours.

If you are heading downtown Fredericton, you must visit the Museum. If you get a chance to see the changing of the guard it is pretty impressive.

$6 per person to get in and they only take cash. ATM is a few blocks away. Good account of the area's history, but a little scant on events during the War of 1812. Still a little unclear as to the role of NB in...More

Be a guard for the day or afternoon (for kids). For adults,checkout what it was like back in time when the Brits where in Canada. A piece of history right in the heart of Fredericton the capital city of New Brunswick.
