In April, our family traveled to Fredericton for the day, from Maine where we live. My wife and granddaughter shopped, and two grandsons and I played tourist. One of the places we visited was the Fredericton Region Museum.
This is a non-profit museum with only one full-time staff member. A small admission fee was charged and donations are accepted.
This is a very interesting museum - for adults and children interested in history. There were quite a few rooms, on two floors, containing many exhibits. The exhibits I found most interesting were the film that gave an overview of the region's history, The Boss's World, Fredericton's Loyalists, a Fredericton perspective on the War of 1812, and of course the exhibit on the Coleman Frog.
The museum offers a game for kids called Find the Frogs. A number of small frogs are placed throughout the museum and anyone who finds all the frogs gets a prize. The game helps maintain the interest of kids for whom history is not their cup of tea.
This is a regional history museum, and it does a very good job of presenting the region's history. I recommend it for visitors to Fredericton who are interesed in history.
