What to See and Do

Travel back in time at Kings Landing and see why millions have shared in our stories, hospitality and vibrant history. Roll up your sleeves and make a little history of your own with authentic, hands-on experiences. There is truly something for everyone—that is of course if you’d like to roll up your sleeves and immerse yourself.

At the core, Kings Landing is a museum. With over 70,000 artefacts, it has one of the largest collections in Atlantic Canada. The history told here reflects stories spanning over 150 years from the exodus of Loyalists during the American Revolution to the Victorians and the birth of Canada and on to the age of progress in the late 19th century and early 20th century. 

The museum is divided into two unique experiences—the Exhibits and the Village. You’ll find over 40 exhibits when you first enter the museum that provide insight into the history you’ll experience in the Village. You’ll also find the Children’s Play Park, our Learning Centre and where our tours kick-off. Once you cross the bridge, The Village is full of activity, with costumed characters depicting real people from New Brunswick’s colourful past through 1st person interpretation. The King’s Head Inn, our onsite restaurant is located in the heart of the Village. 

Every day at Kings Landing is a new experience, so be sure to check our calendar for the most up to date schedule of our programs and activities. 

Lastly, save a little time to visit the Peddler’s Market to find that special souvenir to remember your visit or pick up a loaf of Mary’s Famous Brown Bread or enjoy an ice cream at the Axe & Plough Café.

Getting Here is Easy, Leaving is the Hard Part!
