Located on the second floor, the balcony is the ideal location for small events that require a unique location such as presentations, luncheons, small concerts and receptions.
The Fredericton Region Museum balcony has been rented by private individuals for parties held during festivals held in Officers’ Square to take advantage of the scenery and music. The balcony has also been used to hold afternoon luncheons, VIP events and a fashion show.
Use of the balcony is always weather permitting. In the event of severe rainfall, activities can be moved indoors. A guest speaker will require a microphone because of the street noise.
The balcony is original to the building, if children are on the balcony then they must be accompanied by an adult.
