Well, Spring flew by!  We are officially open for the 2023 Season with a great staff in place…..Curator/Operations Manager Connie Spencer, Assistant Curator Jayne Ings and summer tour guides Annabelle Hodgson and Rory Bears.

Crazy amount of work and long hours putting together new exhibits, along with favorite permanent exhibits that were taken apart for the new flooring to go down.

The 2023 exhibits are:

First Floor – The post office, Shipping, Mi’Kmaq, The Lobster Shanty, Rifles from 1780-WW1, 220th Anniversary of the Brudenell Pioneers

We had a very successful opening day… with lots of people coming through along with the 105.5 summertime cruiser.  While we’re super excited that we were busy the whole day, none of us thought to take any photos.  LOL.. oops.

 Had a blast talking to about 15 residents.  Gabbed about the Museum and took in a few artifacts for them to check out.  Looking forward to visiting them again in the fall.  

Look for our float in the Montague Parade on July 29th…. We will also be open for FREE ADMISSION that day.
