Permanent Exhibit

The Moncton Museum hosts a collection of artifacts and photographs recounting the region's history. Many of these objects are part of the Museum's permanent collection. This exhibit relates Moncton's history from the time of the Mi'kmaqs to today. There are treasures to discover from the period preceding the Deportation of Acadians, the time when agriculture was Moncton's primary economic engine, the golden shipbuilding years and the railway era.
