As we travelled around our wonderful province of New Brunswick this summer, we were sharing our adventures on social and here on the blog. We decided to spend one week exploring our hometown of Moncton, NB. One of the places we visited here in Moncton was Resurgo Place.
This summer is a little different with COVID-19 restrictions in place, but we found the museum had great safety procedures in place to keep both staff and visitors safe.
They have hand sanitizer available, touch sticks for each visitor to allow you to touch buttons on interactive displays, covers for earphones, directional arrows, plexi glass for staff and staff wore masks and distanced out around the museum.
The Transportation Discovery Centre remains temporarily closed at this time due to covid-19 restrictions.
One of Clayton’s favourite parts of visiting Resurgo Place is the Giant Interactive Floor Map of Moncton on the mezzanine.
The Moncton Museum’s Heritage Collection contains artifacts and photographs from the time of the Mi’kmaq, from the period preceding the Deportation of Acadians, from when agriculture was Moncton’s primary economic engine, the golden shipbuilding years and the railway era.
Areas that are open:
• “Pressed in History” (Travelling Exhibition developed by Kings Landing)
• Giant Interactive Floor Map of Moncton (Mezzanine)
• Glimpses into Moncton’s unique saga (Permanent Exhibition)
• “Moving Science” demonstrations: vortex cannon, hovercraft, and more! (Temporary Gallery)
• The Station Gift Shop
• Moncton’s Visitor Information Centre
They also had a DIY Craft station set up with spaced out tables and prepackaged craft kits. We chose to take our home and made this super cute lobster craft!
Be sure to stop by The Station Gift Shop and picked up some local post cards, unique giftware and bring a few nickles to flatten into souvenirs.
You can find Resurgo place at 20 Mountain Road in Moncton, New Brunswick. For more details and information about current exhibits, visit www.resurgo.ca
