Temporary Exhibits


March 17 – June 17, 2018

An exhibition developed by Resurgo Place 

Art of the Editorial is an exhibit that invites visitors to explore politics, government and current affairs of different eras through the editorial art of two notable Moncton-area cartoonists: Michael de Adder, who is still strongly active in the world of editorial cartoons today, and the late Jack MacMellon (1911-1999), who retired as the cartoonist for the Times and Transcript in 1982. Samples of their editorial cartoon works will be on display, along with some artifacts from MacMellon's artist studio and a video interview that brings us a little deeper into de Adder's creative process.

A travelling exhibition developed by the Canadian Museum of History

This lively exhibition helps children discover the importance and diversity of celebrations in Canada. It provides them with a stimulating exploration of the celebrations that bring families together, and gives children a sense of belonging and caring for others. Visitors can explore 12 celebrations through the seasons – from large groups of people gathering for a day of festivities, to special moments in children’s everyday lives. The associated activities provide young visitors with opportunities to be creative, solve problems, and take on new roles.

Presented by the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21

Immigration has played a significant role in the building of Canada, shaping Canadian culture, economy and way of life. That first day of physical arrival to Canada is a symbolic, personal and official milestone in the process of becoming Canadian. Canada: Day 1 aims to explore the multifaceted experiences of newcomers on their first day of arrival in Canada spanning from confederation to present day, as well as the similarities and diversities of these experiences.

Canada day!
