CN 100: Celebrating Canadian National Railway History in Moncton (1919 - 2019)

May 17 - June 27, 2019

Presented by Resurgo Place in partnership with the CN Pensioner’s Association, Moncton Council No. 1

CN 100: Celebrating Canadian National Railway History in Moncton (1919-2019) is a small, yet significant exhibition, developed to highlight CN’s local history, but also to explore a different angle: the people and various occupations related to the railway industry. It complements the numerous railway history references and artefacts on display throughout the museum, in the Heritage Collection, as well as the Transportation Discovery Centre.

Visitors with CN Pensioner’s Association ID cards are invited to come see the exhibition free of charge!

Do you have a hooked mat at home that you are curious about? The New Brunswick Mat Registry is seeking to capture the stories and culture of the people who produced these mats that enhanced the comfort of the early homes of New Brunswick and to add fabric to our lives today!

If you would like to add an item to the database, you are invited to bring your mats to one of their Registry locations where volunteers will:

  • Interview the owner of the mat to learn more about the mat/article;
  • Examinie and document the mat/article and take digital pictures;
