Temporary Exhibitions


Fossil Hunter: Will Matthew and the Giant Trilobite

Ongoing: Fossil Hunter: Will Matthew and the Giant Trilobite. Fossil Hunter is an interactive exhibit developed by the New Brunswick Museum. Based on a true story, it tells the tale of a curious young teenage boy, Will Matthew, who discovered what was, at the time, the largest trilobite in the world. The fossil of the crab-like creature was about 500 million years old and was one of New Brunswick’s most important discoveries. The exhibit is packed with information about trilobites and other fossil evidence from the ancient seafloor. Fossil Hunter lets children discover the ancient secrets of the Earth with fossil specimens, hands-on models, original artwork and interactive components. A bilingual storybook entitled Fossil Hunter: Will Matthew and the Giant Trilobite accompanies the exhibition.
