The University of Moncton, the Cathedral and the Assumption skyscraper are three locations, three buildings in Moncton, which hold a special meaning for Acadians in this New Brunswick urban centre.

The Musée acadien of the Université de Moncton looks back on the various high points of this great Acadian adventure, from 1604 to 2004. With a broad collection of over 45,000 objects, we quickly understand that there is a long history to discover and several communities to come to know!

Discover the Acadians of the past while keeping a foot in the present, and share your experience by using the hashtags #muséeacadien and #RFMSE.
