Groups

Our efforts at serving schools, Elderhostel groups and other educational groups are focussed on site. Although no formal extension program is in place, requests are handled on a case-by-case basis.

Permanent Interactive Exhibit

The new permanent interactive exhibit "Reflections of a Journey - the Odyssey of the Acadian People" presents an historical overview of Acadia to the actual dynamism of the Acadian population. Don't miss it!

Regional Eco-museum

This program is a self-guided opportunity using a pamphlet available at reasonable cost in the visitor centre's sales outlet. Visitors travel around the Memramcook Valley stopping at selected points to view the ecological and historical aspects of the Valley's landscape. This is a project of La Société historique de la vallée de Memramcook.

Guided Tours

There are guided tours available (visitor demand permitting) of the exhibit and the theatre.
