In the fall of 2002, after more than 120 years of a mission of promoting conservation and awareness of the natural sciences in a scholastic environment, the seminary museum, the Musée du Séminaire de Sherbrooke, became the Sherbrooke Museum of Nature and Science. The new building that houses it, the former Julius Kayser hosiery plant, overlooks the Magog river gorge flowing rapidly below. All of these assets combine to create a compelling public space in the heart of the downtown core.
A winner of several awards in the fields of tourism and culture, the Museum offers a diversity of products such as field trips, conferences, parties for children, a shopping boutique, the nature counter and more.
Working tirelessly to carry out its many projects since the creation of the Museum, our team of professionals focuses on the quality and originality of its services.
