    Fantastic art gallery with a pertinent sample of Canadian art. It also includes international art. Low 2 1/2 hours for a good visit. Not to be missed!

    A vibrant busy place to check out local goods and foods. Typically very busy and somewhat pricey but interesting to walk through.

    It is an edifice worth competing with the European palaces, well worth a visit. Unfortunately, it closes at 4:30 or so and we were there too late to see the interior which I read is gorgeous. I recommend coming into town a bit earlier.

    A beautiful park in the middle of Fredericton. Perfect for a hike of an hour or so as well as outdoor play time with the family.

    Wow! What a day at the Sports Hall of Fame. Had the chance to meet NHL Goalie, Jake Allen, wrestle with a national champion outside, play on the sports simulator, and learn all about the history of New Brunswick sport! I didn’t know that Ron Turcotte, Willie O’Ree, and many other Canadian sport icons were from the province.

    You do NOT want to pass up on this beautiful farm. There is always so much fun and interesting/hands on things taking place. From fun events, to a store for snacks and goods, this farm and the people who run it are bound to steal your heart! The animals are friendly, adorable, and live in such a clean and comforting environment! The owners are so kind!

    There are many projects taking place on the farm, so exciting! Have you heard of Goat yoga, summer camps, date nights, dining events, wilderness workshops, and many of the other events this farm offers? if you haven't, please do yourself a favour and inquire. There's always something going on, and a good selection of events that cater to each ones interests!

    Psst, did you know Dancing Goat Therapy Farm has therapy llamas?!?! So incredible! You'll be greeted by sweet Devi and Luna, who will melt your heart upon first glance!

    Where many of the events are based on a preorder basis, there is plenty of time in between each event to book, so no worries!

    Come on out. You won't regret it!!

    A brilliant landmark in New Brunswick showcasing exquisite Indigenous and other fine art works from across the province. Her Honour Brenda Murphy was most gracious.
    Proud to be a New Brunswicker!

    It's a great spot to drop in for a beverage while out for a walk.

    Outdoor seating is great - hopefully they look at ways to expand. Some of the staff could up their customer service game

    I would say they are the #1 spot to get a Growler refilled - southside liquor store advertises refilling options but no one works the counter.

    Overall, love spot and would recommend others to visit

    Unfortunately, it is under a revitalization process, therefore, we kind of missed the opportunity to see its full beauty. The city aims to complete the project next year...

    Science East is in a building with an interesting history. There is not an abundance of exhibits. Yet they are interesting. Adults visiting without children can spend up to one and a half hours at the museum. Due to the hands on exhibits groups with children can stay longer.

    A small museum displaying various displays on the region's history.

    I particularly enjoyed the depiction of the poignant story of the Acadians and the excellent map animation depicting their movements as well as those of other groups involved in the many tragic conflicts of the period.

    I also learned more about Confederation and the local drama that enfolded prior to the province joining in!

    Paid a very reasonable six dollars CANADIAN for 2 hours of enjoyment.

    Great free walking tour of the city. I highly recommend it. We learned lots about the city and the garrison district. Our guide was very knowledgeable. Many thanks to Matthew!
    On our way back, we saw our guide again and toured the historic jail/soldier’s quarters. So much to see and so much history! So glad we stopped in Fredericton and did the tour!
