Welcome to Resurgo Place
Resurgo Place is a state-of-the-art facility where Moncton heritage, technology and discovery intersect. The resilient City of Moncton was built on transportation. We invite you to come discover why the city's motto is Resurgo, "I rise again." Explore stories of our people and heritage. Follow transportation themes that weave in and out, shaping our understanding of this place and its connections to the wider world. Have hands-on fun with our interactive exhibits, moving your creations further, faster and safer!
Resurgo Place houses both the Moncton Museum and the Transportation Discovery Centre and oversees heritage sites, such as the Free Meeting House (1821), the Thomas Williams House (1883) and the Treitz Haus (c. 1769). Be sure to visit The Station Gift Shop for unique gifts and transportation-themed merchandise.
