When hosting an event there are a few things to know about the Fredericton Region Museum as you start planning your event.
You may serve food and drink in the Museum. We work hard to take care of our treasured artefacts; please do not use them as a resting place for beverage cups and plates.
Please be aware of regulations regarding alcohol. If you wish to serve alcohol at your event you are responsible for ensuring that all necessary permits are obtained prior to the event. If the event is open to the public, it is your responsibility to ensure no one who is under age is served.
The Fredericton Region Museum building is both a National and Provincial historical site and is not insulated. During the winter months, the building freezes with the exception of the office and bathrooms. The best months to rent the building are May to September. During May, June and September the Fredericton Region Museum operates on shoulder season hours (Tuesday to Saturday 1-4pm) making rental times more flexible.
Building rentals include the first floor and the second floor. The third floor is not open to the public.
Please call for an appointment to tour the Museum.
Sorry, but the Museum cannot host large weddings or permit dancing.
First Floor: Temporary exhibit galleries, orientation room, admissions desk, office, washrooms, workroom (with kitchen sink), emergency exits, summer kitchen (contains room for sit down seating for approximately 30 people and a platform at the end suitable for a stage).

When renting the building, guests may take self-guided tours and enjoy the Museum’s exhibit spaces.
