The new permanent exhibition features a series of activities designed to depict the city’s evolution across the decades by portraying the lives of Sherbrooke residents from yesteryear to today.
In addition to the Christmas exhibition returning from November to January, two temporary exhibitions are being offered during the 2019-2020 school year.
The confluence of the Saint-François (St. Francis) and Magog rivers is unarguably the cradle of Sherbrooke.
Explore the cradle of Sherbrooke, and note the city’s major transformations over time by comparing their current state to pictures from our archival records.
Discover the history of the current City Hall building, the development of Strathcona Square, and the evolution of governance in municipal politics.
