Musée acadien - Université de Moncton

The Musée acadien de l’Université de Moncton (MAUM) was founded in 1886 and is located on the grounds of the only Francophone University in New Brunswick. For 130 years, the Musée has offered a fresh and dynamic look at Acadian history and culture. It now features over 42,000 artifacts and photographs and boasts one of the largest collections of Acadian artifacts in the world.

Throughout the year, MAUM offers both permanent and temporary exhibitions and divers programming. Since December 2004, the museum has hosted a permanent exhibition called “L’Aventure acadienne/ the Acadian Adventure” which explores the history of Acadians in Atlantic Canada beginning in 1604. The exhibition is divided into two major parts and explores themes as varied as domestic life, religion, education, and folklore in Acadian culture.
