No much things to see or do, in summary it is Poor Museum. During my visit the kids area was without any supervision. Advice to management: try to do show something attractive and try to offer real activities for kids.

The family and I recently visited your province, and St. John must have been our highlight! This museum had a play zone for the kids, art galleries for me and the hubby, and interesting exhibits for all of us. Good spot, right downtown!

We happen to be here on Canada day which made the museum both crowded and free. We found it very interesting especially the logging exhibits. Geological displays are also extremely interesting. We didn’t get to see the movie.
