Museum located in Downtown Bathurst telling the story of the region.
In 1999, a small Heritage Museum, the first in Bathurst, opened in the lower level of the former City Hall. Today, the Museum is located in the Nepisiguit Centennial Building. By collaborating with other cultural groups the building will house the Museum, an archival repository and a major Multicultural Centre.
The artifacts represent life in our region many years ago; photos, archives, genealogical documents, history of the native aboriginal culture as well as the general life of the people of long ago may be viewed.
The Museum, now in a permanent location, is open daily throughout the summer months and by appointment thereafter (in time it will open on a year round basis). Guest exhibitors are invited to display their collections. Admission is free but donations are gratefully accepted (receipt on demand). Small souvenir, pins, postcards and books are available for sale.
