Indoor Attractions For Winter In Saint John
New Brunswick is known largely for natural beauty, and that may indeed be the region's main attraction. From Irving Nature Park to the Hopewell Rocks and everything in between, there's a great deal of breathtaking nature to see while outdoor activities abound. But in and around Saint John, there's also plenty to do in the way of more conventional entertainment, to keep yourself busy this time of year (when the cold temperatures have set in!). Here are a few of the area's best indoor attractions to enjoy this winter season.
something of a landmark in Saint John and built near the beginning of the 20th
century, the Imperial Theatre is a pretty impressive venue before one even
considers what may be going on inside! Having been restored to resemble its
original condition, the venue truly feels like a building out of a previous
era. That element makes any performance theremusical, theatrical, or
otherwisea wonder to behold. In fact,
according to Discover Saint John , the theatre has even been
referred to as "the most beautifully restored theatre in Canada."
New Brunswick Museum
Finally there's the New Brunswick Museum in Saint John. It is actually Canada's oldest continuing museum, having opened in its original form back in 1842. Naturally, a great deal has changed since then. Yet, in addition to its esteemed history as such an enduring attraction, the New Brunswick Museum also has many fascinating exhibitions to see. There are the more ordinary displays featuring paintings and artistic creations from Canada and around the world, but then there are the exhibitions. These include the Hall of Great Whales, the Wind, Wood and Sail collection, and the Birds Of New Brunswick room, all of which offer a more unique representation of the region. It's truly a fairly breathtaking museum to wander through.
