Museum experiences

  • Discover the day-to-day life of Florina Lacoste, a 12 years old worker who shares the story of her workday back in 1888. Her testimony, as those of many workers, came to us thanks to the report of the Royal commission on the Relations of Labor and Capital.
  • Meet Omer Lanciault, the Généreux bath’s keeper in the 1950’s. He and his family live in the premises of the swimming pool, where he is responsible for the building, in addition to being the organizer of numerous sporting and recreational activities.
