What is a geopark? What is Stonehammer? Where does our Stonehammer adventure begin? Who explored and discovered the geology of the area? These are typical questions we are asked and all can be answered here. Whether your tour is self-guided, interpretive, in the gallery or one of the hands-on Stonehammer experiences you will find the answers for yourself!

Explore, discover and enjoy all that the New Brunswick Museum has to offer! A visit to the New Brunswick Museum brings heritage to life. Join us and discover a world of fun, learning and wonderment. The Market Square Exhibition Centre offers three floors and 60,000 square feet of permanent and temporary exhibition spaces and a wide range of programs and events. The Collections, Archives and Research Library and Head Office are situated at the Douglas Avenue Collections Centre.
