The Museum is open Wednesday to Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm.
The team has imagined a colorful and original concept, which will allow you, while respecting the sanitary rules put in place, to enhance your experience that will be different, certainly, but just as stimulating.
Once again, you will be able to explore the exhibition Alteranima in the heart of a fantastic universe where your gaze will mingle with the gaze of animals gathered in an unexpected and scientific way. Watch and open your eyes, many are hidden in unusual places! A flock of visual and sound surprises await you in this fantasized forest.
Continue by traveling through the changing landscapes of Sherbrooke and its region with Terra Mutantès. Experience the tumult of continental drift, cross fields of molten lava, witness the creation of lakes and rivers that line the Sherbrooke landscape, feel the separation of continents and the deglaciation, without even leaving the Museum!
The Museum offers three temporary exhibitions including Indians Beyond Hollywood, an amazing exhibition on the image of Aboriginal people in popular culture with its runaway warrior tales. Return to your childhood memories with Lucky Luke chatting with the Apache Grand Chief. Images that permeate the collective imagination.
Discover the exhibition Paleomission: In Search of the Ancient Sloth. Dive with scientists from Bishop’s University and the Cuban Museum of Natural History, in the heart of submerged caves and experience their work step by step. One of the greatest paleontological mysteries, the disappearance of megafauna at the end of the most recent ice age, about 11,000 years ago.
Finish by visiting TICKS, LITTLE BUGS, BIG PROBLEMS, an exhibition offered by the Public Health Agency of Canada. Designed for children, it offers an insight into the fascinating world of ticks through simplified and adapted scientific facts. The exhibition also offers practical information for accompanying adults, allowing them to talk about ticks and the diseases they transmit with their child.
We look forward to seeing you!
