Small craft stores in the barns. Historic artifacts in the officers area. Toured by costumed actors. The actors hang outside all day (summer) doing performances and games of croquet. Very fun

As you walk through the downtown of Fredericton, it is worth stopping to see the changing of the guards, the barracks and all the associated buildings in this area.

The tour was very informative and detailed. Our tour guide was very friendly, knowledgable, and patient. We enjoyed the tour, especially our children (7 & 12 yr old). Very glad the tour guide talked us into taking the tour.
