The Albert County Museum and RB Bennett Centre is proud to announce the unveiling of a unique new exhibit honouring the early Acadian settlers who arrived here in the early 1700’s and helped establish a rich agricultural presence along the shores of the Petitcodiac River and the Bay of Fundy area. The “Acadians in Albert County” exhibit will be located in the south wing of the Exhibition Hall.
We are hosting the unveiling during our season opening event on May 18th from 1pm to 3pm and the ribbon cutting will be held at 1:30 with a reception to follow. Admission to the Museum is free during the unveiling so please join us! The “Acadians in Albert County” exhibit will be available for viewing daily from 9:30 to 5:30 through September as part of your tour of the Albert County Museum.
While in the Hall, visit the nearby the “County of Heroes” exhibit, honouring the WWI veterans from Albert County and Victoria Cross recipient Lt. Colonel Cy Peck. The 100th Anniversary of the return of the 26th Battalion from Europe took place this May.
