The New Brunswick Museum Exhibition Centre will re-open to the public on July 7, 2020

The New Brunswick Museum is excited to share that our Exhibition Centre at Market Square will be re-opening to the public on Tuesday, July 7th!

Like many other businesses, our operations will be a bit different. We will be open the following days and hours:

Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm, and on Thursday from 12pm to 7:30 pm.  Closed Sunday and Monday.

Social distancing and hygiene protocols have been put in place and the use of non-medical masks are mandatory. We encourage you to visit our website and social media pages for more information on our COVID-19 measures to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for our visitors and staff, as well as our reduced entrance fees.

Some programs have been put on pause however teams are working hard behind the scenes on innovative new ways including more walking tours outside the galleries and unique digital experiences.  We are also moving the NB Art Gallery from the third floor to the first floor over the coming weeks, stay tuned for more information on that as well.

NBM’s new temporary exhibition, ‘What is… an exhibition?’, has been reviewed and transformed since its original opening in early March 2020, and will offer an opportunity for visitors to see  behind and in front of the scenes of the development of an exhibition!

“It is with much enthusiasm and excitement that we announce the re-opening of New Brunswick Museum Exhibition Centre at Market Square. The New Brunswick Museum is your provincial museum and Canada’s oldest continuing museum.  We will continue to engage people of all ages, with knowledge and understanding of New Brunswick’s cultures, natural history and environment”, says Bill Hicks, NBM CEO.

We look forward to welcoming NBM members back too and will be rolling out further exclusive plans over the coming weeks!

Continue to watch for further information on the re-opening to the public of the New Brunswick Museum Archives and Research Library at 277 Douglas Avenue, Saint John, New Brunswick, in the not too distant future.
