About Our Museum


You will find us in downtown Sussex, the heart of New Brunswick and the Dairy Center of the Maritimes. We are situated in the beautiful Princess Louise Park, next door to the Princess Louise Show Center, the 8th Hussars Sports Center, and the Golden Jubilee Hall.

Our organization was founded in 1986 by members of the New Brunswick agricultural community to let others know about our province’s pride in its rural roots.

Our collection includes hundreds of carefully gathered artifacts from our province’s rural way of life.   We now boast one of the largest collections in the Atlantic Provinces.

Today, we welcome guests from all over the world to our facility. Guests are invited to tour displays of agricultural equipment, antique home settings, a schoolroom, blacksmith’s shop, and train station.

You are invited to stop by between June and September, with special viewings year round by appointment.

The Museum is now open for the Summer
