Love history? You’re the family historian? You’re a history buff in training? This experience is designed for you! We’ve made our archivists available to take you behind-the-scenes of New Brunswick’s archives. You’ll start with an overview of this gorgeous building and see where and how records are stored. The holdings are expansive – texts, family papers, maps, architectural plans, photos, sound recordings, films and video. Did you know, for example, that microfilm is stored in cold storage and there are various ways to date historical records? You’ll have plenty of opportunity to view documents and photographs and if you have any questions, the archivist is on-hand to answer them. You’ll leave with a deep connection to New Brunswick’s history and a great understanding of how well it’s preserved.
