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.

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 interesting way to get visitors to take a closer look. We were very glad we... 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 interesting. It's not the most extravagant museum but as said in the title, we had... More

This museum is quite small. The Terra Mutantes (only in french) is a little scary for young children, and at our end of the table the effects didn't work. The taxidermy exposition was quite extensive, and our kids enjoyed looking at the various local and exotic animals.

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.

We did not know what to expect in a small local museum of Science - but it was quite delightful. 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. Most of the... More

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!!
