Happy Holidays from the New Brunswick Museum!
Our Holiday Gift to You: Free Admission December 29, 30 and 31


Celebrate the holiday season with a free visit to the New Brunswick Museum December 29, 30, and 31 – our holiday gift to you! Bring your friends, family and co-workers along for a day of interesting stories and activities for all ages!  Free admission, noon to 5 pm.  

There will be lots of activities for everyone to enjoy, including ‘The Mastodon Song’, great tales from the Whaling Days, themed crafts and many hands-on activities. Visitors can enjoy the Museum star attractions through the many wonders of natural science, stories of New Brunswick history, and the beauty of fine art.

Take this last chance to explore the exhibition Ice Age Mammals, visiting from the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa. Step back in time… to four million years ago and chill out with mammoths, mastodons, three-toed horses, lions, and even camels! Touch a real mammoth tusk; meet Bucky the giant beaver; and discover how these mammals became frozen in time.

Stroll through the galleries and enjoy some beautiful images from New Brunswick’s artists including Miller Brittain: When the Stars Threw Down Their Spears - the visiting exhibition from the Beaverbrook Art Gallery; and from the new Know Your Own Artists series - Alexandra Flood: Tableaux.
