New Brunswick is rich in military history. In order to tell our story, we rely on donations of uniforms, weapons, medals, books, photographs and other artifacts. Donations may become part of new or existing displays in the Museum or part of a travelling exhibit. Items from the 1600s to present day are required from all elements; Army, Navy and Air Force. Provenance – known history of the item such as owner or use – helps us fit the item into the story line and greatly increases its value both to the Museum and to New Brunswick military history.
Although we receive partial funding as a military museum, funds required for routine operations must be generated from local resources. This includes grants and donations from interested organizations and individuals. Donations may be used for a variety of purposes including hiring staff and helping to pay for a new facility. Tax receipts will be issued for any amount over $10.00.
The museum will also accept honorary donations for exhibit development, artefact restoration projects, outreach initiatives, and educational program development. For more information about donating to the museum, please call 506-422-1304 or you can contact the Executive Director at 506-422-2563.
