The Fredericton Region Museum will be having our annual Open House event this summer on Sunday, August 10th, from 10 am – 5pm! This event will feature the grand unveiling of the First World War Vimy Ridge trench exhibit. We are excited to unveil our new exhibit to the public as we have worked very hard and are extremely proud with the level of detail we’ve included. This immersive exhibit has been a huge undertaking and we are certain you’ll love it as much as we do. It does an amazing job at capturing the trench life experience that so many were forced to live through.

We are offering coupons for Hannah’s Tea Place, located on our second floor balcony. There, visitors can purchase historic refreshments and are invited to help make dog and cat toys for the Fredericton SPCA. The first 100 attendees at the Open House will receive coupons for Hannah’s Tea Place.

The new musical group Sona will be performing during the day on the balcony. They are a new group composed of young Fredericton students. Sona sings in English, French, and Gaelic. Make sure you don’t miss their performance!

A white gloves tour will allow visitors to get up close and personal with many of our artefacts located on the third floor. Door prizes, crafts for children and the sale of our popular root beer floats complete the day.

Remember that Open House means that we will not be charging admission. This means the whole family can come for free! So please come to the museum August 10th if you are looking for a fun filled day in down town Fredericton.
