The New Brunswick Museum is looking at other options now besides expanding into Riverview Memorial Park next door. Museum CEO Jane Fullerton told CBC red tape at City Hall has brought them to a standstill so they have to consider other locations where they could move valuable artifacts and collections.

They wanted to expand onto neighbouring property but people protested, concerned the memorial to the Boer War would be lost. So the museum's board of directors has decided to focus on other options, including possibly moving the museum to another location.
