Trip Planner: Canada / New Brunswick / Albert County / Hopewell Cape / Albert County Museum
The Albert County Museum is located in Hopewell Cape, New Brunswick. The Museum consists of eight buildings on a six-acre site and features twenty-two themed galleries. All of the buildings are original to the site and are part of the overall history presented. The County Tax Office, County Records Office and County Gaol are from the time of the creation of Albert County in 1845. The County Court House on the site was built in 1904 to replace the original that had been lost in a fire earlier. The complex encompasses what was known as the Shiretown (capital) of Albert County. The Albert County Museum is owned and operated by the Albert County Historical Society Incorporated, a Registered Canadian Charity.Plan to visit Albert County Museum and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Hopewell Cape attractions using our Hopewell Cape journey maker tool.
The museum houses the Prime Minister R.B. Bennett Commemorative Centre which opened in 2010 to commemorate the life of the Canadian Prime Minister, R. B. Bennett, who grew up in the community. It also contains artifacts and displays related to the convicted murderer, Tom Collins.
Albert County Museum reviews
We spent longer than we were planning to at this nice little country museum. The variety of buildings give a nice picture of life in a small Maritimes town in the late 19th and early 20th centuries...

Step back in time at your own pace . Great spot for photos any time of year. The old courthouse is lovely and available for small weddings and other events. We pop in at least once per year.
Had a good time visiting and learning here today. It was sad that not every aspect of the museum was available due to COVID-19 but what we were able to see was neat. We even learned something new about New Brunswick history. For $10 entry/each it was a neat way to spend an hour or so and learn some New Brunswick history and take some tacky tourist pictures!
