The building originally housed the postal and customs services, and since 1992 has had two exhibition rooms. One of the rooms contains temporary theme exhibitions. The other room contains permanent exhibition.

Activities and teacher’s kits are offered by the Société d'histoire de Sherbrooke for school groups, from daycare to high school.
