Government House

Due to restrictions on large gatherings and maintaining / enforcing physical distancing, tours have been cancelled for the summer of 2020.

This building was 'centre-stage' for the frustrations, fears and intrigues, which culminated in the union of British North America. It was here that Lieutenant Governor, Sir Arthur Hamilton Gordon, worked with pro-confederation advocates in Canada, as well as New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, to bring about our entry into Confederation. This National and Provincial Historic Site, built in 1828, is a place of history, culture, art and excellence. Open to the public regularly, Government House is a museum, gallery, heritage site and community resource.

*Government House is the official residence and place of work for New Brunswick's Lieutenant-Governor.

*Free guided tours available from June to end of August, Monday to Saturdays (10am-4pm), or by appointment.

Tour dates and times may vary without notice, please call ahead.
