Resurgo Place & Moncton Museum

New Brunswick

This modern, engaging museum inside Resurgo Place follows the story of Moncton. Steer a car-cart over a giant floor map to see video footage and learn the history of landmarks and check out impressive artifacts such as a French Bible from 1747. The transportation exhibit is kid-tastic; drive a train, build a truck and a boat, pilot a sub and launch a rocket. Stop by the traveling exhibitions as well.
