This small museum is in a shopping center which is part of the larger convention center. It is accessible from inside the mall and has a small gift shop.

Very good museum with excellent whale exhibits and probably the largest collection of whale skeletons. Quite magnificent. There is also a unique exhibit of Scandinavian influence in Canadian Design.

Free admission at the New Brunswick Museum at Market Square in Saint John on Canada Day. My friend and I had visited many times before but we were interested in the new exhibit about nighttime animal behaviours. This was a real crowd pleaser for both...More

What a great museum! Got a guided tour through the shipbuilding exhibit which brought it to life. Interesting seeing the different kinds of woods used for different parts of ships. Really blown away by the Whale skeletons and exhibits on the upper floor. Great time!

We went to the museum on Canada Day when it was free admission. It was very crowed. We were able to see all the areas. It was a great experience.

This museum is a gem! It's a diverse museum with something to interest almost anybody. I particularly liked the history of ship building in New Brunswick. There are also exhibits about local industry, arts & crafts, and natural history. The whale skeleton is breathtaking.

You simply cannot (or should not) visit Saint John and skip the New Brunswick Museum. It is located centrally at 1 Market Square and the collection consists of various themes (New Brunwick, Canada and International, to name a few). Worth the admission (2017: Can$ 10).
