Entry fee is reasonable and the displays fascinating. As it was lunch time we went up the hill to the student refectory and had a very acceptable lunch surrounded by folk much younger than ourselves!

since we came to Moncton to search Acadian history, this was the place to go. Well displayed and the narratives confirmed some of what we new and helped with new information (leads). Highly recommend a visit. Even if your not Acadian.
