   The Albert County Museum
in Hopewell Cape, New
Brunswick, is the home of the
Prime Minister R.B. Bennett
Commemorative Centre. R.B.'s
story is told throughout the
eight buildings that make up
the museum. The traditional
museum exhibits portray
R.B.'s life from his birth

careers to his political life

this exhibit allows the
inclusion of other resources
into the story and provides
the opportunity for R.B.'s

project we bring together the

whole story of R.B. Bennett
into a single source of
information that can be used
as a resource for students
and educators alike in their
quest to understand the
complexities surrounding the
political climate during the
Great Depression.
