Can’t Miss Kings Landing Experiences

Visit Kings Landing this summer, and make a little history of your own with authentic, hands-on experiences! Kings Landing is a living history museum that offers two unique experiences: The Exhibit Experience and the Village.

When you first enter the museum, you’ll find interactive, engaging exhibits that might just surprise you. See artefacts rarely displayed from a collection of over 70,000 pieces and share in their stories, mystery and intrigue.

Get your hands dirty in one of the new heritage teaching gardens.

Exciting new additions to the Exhibit Experience include guided horseback riding, the Children’s Play Park, a summer stage for concerts and performances, CövenHöven Distillery exhibit, a corn maze, heritage-teaching gardens with a seed saving program, and plenty of curatorial and event space for partners.

 

Is this too corny? #discovernb

As you cross the bridge and see the landmark Sawmill, one of Canada's most photographed buildings, you will be travelling back in time to 19th-century rural, New Brunswick.

Here, in the Village, you'll meet a variety of folks from New Brunswick's colourful past. These people are dressed in period clothing and are interpreting real historical figures. They do not break character!

Making ends-meet is of constant concern for the community, so don’t be surprised when you’re asked to pitch-in. Pop into their homes and shops, lend a hand to the farmers in the fields and when you're ready to take a load-off, order a refreshing drink at the English-style pub.

By the time you're ready to head back to reality, you'll probably be pretty tired. Cap-off your experience with a laid-back horse and wagon ride around the museum--it's the perfect end to a truly memorable day.

Kings Landing is open daily from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm from June 10 to October 9. To see everything going on at Kings Landing during the 2017 season, check out this online calendar. There truly is something for everyone!
