The Village and the Exhibits
The collection of buildings includes homes and farmhouses, a sash and door factory, a gristmill, a sawmill, a general store, a parish school, several tradesmen's shops, and a restored sailboat. New buildings and other facilities are added from time to time. A visit to this open-air history museum includes two main experiences: the exhibits and the village.
An Open-air History Museum
With over 70,000 historical artifacts on display, the exhibits introduce visitors to the built heritage and daily lives of New Brunswickers of years past. Kings Landing Historical Settlement is one of Canada's pre-eminent living history sites, interpreting society on the Saint John River in the 19th century. Unlike many such sites that focus on a specific year or decade, Kings Landing shows the evolution of this society from its Loyalist roots to the late Victorian era. The site is open from June to mid-October.
