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 19th-century rural New Brunswick, in particular, the social and cultural history of the St. John River Valley. Stories span 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 offers two ways to learn about this history — the Exhibits and the Village. You’ll find lots of educational exhibits when you first enter the museum that provide insight into the history you’ll experience in the Village. You’ll also find the Kid Zone, the Summer Stage, and where our tours kick-off.
The Village is full of activity, with costumed characters depicting real people from New Brunswick’s colourful past. You can pop into their homes, lend a hand to the farmers, see the friendly animals, visit the Grant Store, and more. 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, pick up a loaf of Mary’s Famous Brown Bread or enjoy an ice cream at the Axe & Plough Café.
