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.

The musee is a good place to take younger children.The displays are well conceived and fun for the amall kids.It is quite a small museum,so adults and older kids will find it a bit underwhelming.I think this a fairly good place to go on a Sunday afternoon on a rainy day.

The permanent display contains some 200 birds and animals - stuffed - on display and named; there is also an ipad given to you which id's the displays and has a program which has narrative as well.

We were looking for an attraction on an extremely cold day. We thought we would be spending about an hour visiting this museum. We were wrong. We spent an entire afternoon! We were the only patrons along with 2 other adults. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. We enjoyed our visit immensely, especially the interactive section. This is... More

Liked the multimedia show but in french. Not much for adults. A bit expensive it only takes a little over an hour to visit all the exhibits.

My daughter (8 years old) loves going to the museum on rainy days and can spend hours looking around to see if we missed anything the last time. Exhibits change every few months to keep things interesting and it is very affordable!!

Enjoyed the interactive displays. We went to the 25 minute show about the birth of the Appalachian mountains-it was fantastic. Highly recommend it. They played an English version for us at 12:30 pm. Great spot for children and adults to share learning, exploration, and fun.

This bilingual French & English museum is FUN and interactive. The HIGHLIGHTS were the exhibit "Terramutantès" which included a visual touch table, simulated mist, snow, wind (you need to experience it to be wow'ed by it)... and the earthquake simulation room. The museum in general was educational, and visually appealing.

After the first time there 6 months ago, I bought a year pass. (allows me access to other museums too!)There are so many exciting exhibits to see- both permanent as well as 'seasonal' or thematic ones. Great way to spend an afternoon or morning especially if you had children who need to be entertained. Highly informative without being overloaded with... More
