There’s no time like the present to discover the past! Kings Landing is an open-air, living history museum that tells the story of life in 19th-century rural New Brunswick. Since 1974, millions of visitors have shared in our history. With 70 historic buildings from the late 1800s and early 1900s and a collection of over 77,000 artefacts, Kings Landing is a world-class living history museum and a must-see for history lovers.

A visit to Kings Landing includes chatting with our costumed villagers, walking through our galleries, taking a horse and wagon ride, eating a delicious meal at the King’s Head Inn Restaurant, seeing the many farm animals, shopping at the Peddler’s Market and the Grant Store, and so much more. There’s truly something for everyone!

Kings Landing is open from early June until mid-October.

Notes from "Bringing History to Life"

I grew up in southern New Brunswick where I spent much of my free time in my pre-teen years reading historical novels such as Anne of Green Gables, Little House on the Prairie, Little Women and other tales of life in the 1800s. So it is no surprise that I adore visiting Kings Landing, an open-air, living museum that brings that era to life. The museum is situated about a half hour’s drive from Fredericton, N.B. beside the beautiful Saint John River. You can walk the grounds to visit 70 historic buildings, interact with costumed villagers, dine at the inn or take a horse and wagon ride, among many other activities.

As an 11-year old, I attended a historic camp at Kings Landing, where I got to dress in period costume, milked cows and made butter by hand, learnt to knit and weave, attended lessons in the one-room schoolhouse and got to fully immerse myself in what life was like for a child in rural New Brunswick in the 19th century. It was the closest I’ll ever come to taking a trip in a time machine and cemented my life-long love of historic places.
