I went on a business trip to pass the time. Originally planned not to go because thought was too childish. I was amused with the things to do and was entertained. Information was well presented quick and informational. The jailhouse basement section stories were humorous or interesting actually of the 30ish museums I have been to within the last year this was a top one. Highly recommended for anyone with children 5 to 12 a must see
On our way from Toronto to Cape Breton we decided to stop in Fredericton to give ourselves a break between two 7.5hr days of driving. It was only fare to our 5yr old that she get to run and get some freedom. We’re so glad this place exists!! It’s interactive in the sense that kids need to actually do something to get a reaction.
