Updating Map...
A new multimedia/multisensory adventure awaits, a mere stone's throw from the Orford Express and Omaterra. Witness the birth of the Appalachian Mountains and cross the lava fields. Feel the continents shift and the glaciers retreat as the earth trembles and the temperature soars, then plunges... You'll never see the Eastern Townships quite the same way again! Be sure to stop by the permanent exhibition "The Cycle of the Seasons," which showcases the finest plant and animal specimens in southern Québec! Consult the program for temporary exhibitions and events.

We visited the museum with our 5 year old daughter and 6 year old niece. They loved all the hands-on stuff, and we loved the video game section (not part of the permanent collection). The whole animal section was a bit creepy to me, and...More

We went with teens who found it geared for younger people. Still, there was plenty to enjoy, such as stuffed/mounted specimens of many animals, birds, insects, etc. There was a cool earthquake simulator that we enjoyed, too. Very friendly staff.

Nice museum, the permanent collection is nicely presented and the temporary ones are always very interactive. For anyone in the Sherbrooke area with young children, the yearly pass is a great deal. Inexpensive and a nice way to spend those rainy Sunday mornings!

Stopped by on a rainy day. Saw a LOT of little kids, and we began to wonder if we had chosen a bad place. We felt bad that we don't speak any french, but the staff were more than happy to help. They had interactive...More

This museum isn't that big but the exhibits were really good. The exhibits around ''La petite vie'' was really good and was enjoyed by everybody in the family. I would recommend stopping by if you are in town.

A very helpful bilingual staff made this museum quite enjoyable. As it is a smaller museum, I would only plan about 2 hours and that includes the 30 minute interactive movie. Well worth it.

We were so impressed with this museum. While it is small in scale, it is very well done and engaging for kids and adults. Everything is fully translated into English, including the interactive film. The tablet experience with the specimen collection is a fun and...More

The museum has 3 exhibits but the main one with the interactive tablets is the interesting one. There is a scavenger hunt game that the kids really like and the comments on the various items and how they were acquired by the museum are also...More
