larger_lancement_de_la_saison_estivale_2.jpgOnce again, this summer you will have an opportunity to choose from the huge array of activities and exciting events taking place at the Sherbrooke Museum of Nature and Science. An incredible variety of new things to do and see have been created to help you make the most of the 2011 summer season.

It was with great pride that Marie-Claude Bibeau, the museum’s Executive Director, introduced the official museum mascot, Ludo, the small, friendly, energetic boy who welcomed our guests as they arrived at the Sherbrooke Museum of Nature and Science. A playful, curious boy, Ludo is passionate about nature and science. He loves to make new and fascinating discoveries, which is why the museum is a big part of his world and why he and his friends spend all of their time there. During the summer, you will be able to meet Ludo at various events throughout the Eastern Townships.

The 2011 summer season was launched by a presentation given by Mari-Claude Bibeau. Overwhelmed by the guided tour, our guests certified that the museum was full of fun, interactive activities for the whole family. The same tour will be offered to museum visitors daily from June 24 to September 6, 2011, at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Every visitor will have an opportunity to discover the exceptional items displayed in each of our exhibition areas. In addition, they will be able to learn more about the history of the museum, which is not only a scientific educational resource, but has become a cultural organization, as well as a tourist destination.

During the summer season, from June 24 to September 6, 2011, the museum will be open 7 days a week, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For further information about our summer schedule and to find out more about where Ludo will be appearing, please visit our website at If you are able to catch up with him, Ludo will definitely have something special for you.
