Situated in the geographical centre of the province, this 6.1-ha (15-acre) forest land is immersed in lumbering legends, ghostly hauntings, folklore, and songs. Savour the stories of the Canadian lumberjack. Their colorful and vibrant lives have been shaped by our majestic forest and the magic of the Miramichi River.
Wandering the museum buildings, you weave the story of Thomas Boies, the mill owner and lumberman who founded Boiestown, starting with his arrival in 1821. Boiestown became the supply and jumping-off place for the lumbering business up and down the Miramichi River.
Stories of the camp cook, teamsters, loggers, lumbermen, stage coach drivers, and the historic Whooper Train are spun throughout the Museum site; tales that are as old as the trees in our Forest.
Stop by for a visit and spin an enchanted tale of your own, a tale that can be passed down from generation to generation, a tale that will lure you back to meet the Miramichi River people and the characters carved from our forest, time and time again!
And, you can even visit the Avenger Plane!
