The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The museum is clean and well maintained. The exhibits are good. My family especially liked the hallway with the whale hanging from the ceiling. For the size of the children's section, the number of activities offered was sparse.

A great way to spend an afternoon in downtown Saint John. So many great exhibits and an interactive play zone for little kids.

No much things to see or do, in summary it is Poor Museum. During my visit the kids area was without any supervision. Advice to management: try to do show something attractive and try to offer real activities for kids.
