Restigouche is one of the largest most diverse counties in New Brunswick. From the highlands of the Appalachian Interior to the seacoasts of Chaleur Bay, it holds a wealth of history, both natural and human. The Restigouche Regional Museum dates from 1967 and attempts to recreate the Restigouche story, beginning with the remote past when strange creatures swam in tropical seas, where now villages, towns and a city stand. The museum traces the development of the unique Micmac culture, the arrival of Acadian, French, Scottish, British and Irish settlers and the development of logging, ship building and paper industries to the present day.
Everyday from 9am to 5pm.
