Museum experiences

  • Visit the general store that belonged to Louis S. St. Laurent's father, Jean-Baptiste-Moïse, and discover an old-time country ambience. The counters and shelves, all authentic, are covered with reproductions of articles evocative of daily life in a village at the turn of the century. The authenticity of the store is enhanced by conversations around the iron stove, and by various items of that time, such as whalebone corsets, chamber pots and washboards.
