The New Brunswick Museum Exhibition Centre will be closed until further notice

Visiting

The New Brunswick Museum (NBM) Exhibition Centre is closed until further notice as the museum is entering a crucial phase of major facilities and exhibitions renewal.

The Government of New Brunswick is actively working with the Board, staff and management of the NBM to identify a permanent location in Saint John for a revitalized New Brunswick Museum.

While this work proceeds, the Archives and Research Library and the Humanities and Natural History Departments, at the Douglas Avenue Collections and Research Centre, will remain open for business, as will the NBM Boutique in-store (Market Square and Area 506 Container Village) and online.

More information on this next chapter for the museum will be announced soon.

Archives & Research Library

Douglas Ave

New Brunswick Museum Archives collects, preserves, and gives access to documentary heritage such as diaries and other personal papers, business records, maps, and photographs. Greeting cards, playbills, menus and other ephemera giving fascinating glimpses into the history of New Brunswick. Holdings document the economic, legal, military, religious and political life of NB.

The Research Library houses reference books relating to NBM collecting areas, especially natural sciences, NB and Canadian history, shipping, fine and decorative arts.

Collections & Research Centre

Managing, preserving and understanding the New Brunswick Museum’s varied collection takes place mainly at the Collections & Research Centre.  Trained and expert staff investigate the stories of artifacts and specimens held in trust for appreciation and enjoyment by the public now and for future generations. Access to the reserve collection is provided through publication, exhibition and workshops as well as guided study or research opportunities.
