I very much recommend visiting this museum, even though the 3rd floor was closed and some sections of the first floor were under repair. The first floor has a good exhibition of the early activities new brunwickers used to do. You can see all the original tools they used for forestry, farming and ship building. The part of ship building is just amazing. They discribe the process in a high detail. They even have samples of the different wood types that go in different parts of the ship. The second floor is also very good. It has multiple fossils of large mammals that used to live in the region during the last ice age. It also has a very complete collection of birds typically found mostly in the bay of Fundy

This was a decent museum focused on the history of New Brunswick province. Nothing particularly amazing but worth checking out.

I have reviewed this place and if that review failed to be published, I would say, if you are there, never miss this museum.

Highly recommended to include into your itinerary...or make a special trip there! My wife and I, during our trip to Nova Scotia, intentionally stayed an extra day in Saint John to visit the New Brunswick (NB) Museum and take in a few other sights. We are so glad that we did. This museum is a treasure trove of wonderful NB history, the importance of logging and shipping, displays of the "Changing Earth", birds of NB, and very notably a spectacular displays of Great Whales and a mastodon. Not to be missed on Level 3 are notable Canadian contributions to space exploration and various artwork. A visitor could easily spend a half-day there touring through this great museum. Commendation is truly deserved to the curators and staff in their ability to collecting and displaying such interesting and compelling displays.
