A museum anchored in its community

The Écomusée du fier monde invites you to travel back to the time of the Industrial Revolution! As a history and a community museum, we encourage you to explore the history of labour and reflect on the social issues in the area. The Écomusée is situated in the former Généreux public bath, a magnificent example of 1920’s architecture.

The Écomusée du fier monde comprises:

  • a neighbourhood and a community,
  • exhibitions and publications,
  • cultural activities and educational programs,
  • a versatile space to host events.

The Écomusée du fier monde is a museum that reflects the pride of an entire community.
