Over a dozen galleries explore themes that are important to our province. Stories from extensive art, history and natural science collections are the focus in our feature galleries and an active schedule of temporary exhibitions means there’s something new to experience every visit

Archives & Research Library

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.
