Preparing for a Group Tour

Museum Manners
In order to have the best possible experience at the Fredericton Region Museum, please discuss the following points with students and chaperones shortly before your visit.

For Students:
– If possible, leave your backpacks and large bags at school or on the bus. They may not be taken into the galleries and will have to be left unattended.
– Stay with your group at all times. Do not walk away with strangers.
– For your safety and the safety of our precious artefacts, please walk, don’t run.
– Be respectful and kind to the docent (guide) leading your group.
– Questions and comments are great! Please raise your hand when you want to speak and listen quietly when others are talking.
– Use your polite “inside voice.”
– Photography is allowed in our galleries but do not use a flash while in galleries that have paintings.
– To keep our Museum objects clean and safe, please do not bring food and drink into the galleries, touch the artefacts or lean on the cases.

For Teachers and Chaperones:
– BE SURE TO COUNT YOUR STUDENTS before you arrive and before you leave the Fredericton Region Museum.
– You are welcome to join in discussions, encourage students’ participation and help students relate museum exhibits to what they have been studying.
– Teachers and chaperones are responsible for maintaining discipline as you would in the classroom. Please set a good example for students to model.
– For their own security, please be sure the children know the names of the adults in charge of their group.
– Students must remain in chaperoned groups before, during and after the tour, whether in the galleries or near the Museum entrances.
