New Brunswick Museum and New Brunswick Public Libraries launch Free Admission pass

The New Brunswick Public Libraries and New Brunswick Museum are partnering to provide free passes to New Brunswick public library cardholders. All New Brunswick residents are invited to check out 175+ years of stories by signing out a pass at their local public library and visiting the New Brunswick Museum in Saint John.

The New Brunswick Museum Pass can be checked out with a library card at any NBPLS library branch in the province starting on International Museums Day, May 18, and continuing until May 31. Each library cardholder can receive one pass redeemable for single admission to the NB Museum Exhibition Centre in Saint John, valid for a single visit before September 16, 2018. The passes are good for general admission only; any special program fees still apply and passes are not applicable to group visits.

The New Brunswick Museum is Canada’s oldest continuing museum, with a history that traces back to 1842. Generations of collecting and research have resulted in a treasure trove of stories of life in New Brunswick. The New Brunswick Exhibition Centre presents compelling permanent and temporary exhibitions and engaging programmes with hands-on and interactive fun. Everyone in New Brunswick (and beyond) can access the provincial museum online by visiting NB Museum virtual exhibitions at Discover NB Museum stories and events through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or the NBM website.

Visitors redeeming their library passes will be offered a 15% discount on membership. NB Museum members support the provincial museum’s mission to collect, preserve, research, and interpret New Brunswick’s natural, human and cultural heritage. The New Brunswick Museum serves and is supported by people from all across the province. Full membership details are available at by clicking on “Get Involved.”
