To see and experience

Come to visit the permanent exhibition Footprints larger than life, about the Cambrian paleontology. Fossil traces that are exposed have more than 500 million years and are probably among the largest traces of invertebrates ever discovered. Come see these fossil traces and learn more about the science that is often confused with archaeology!

Some other irresistible attractions: a chance to handle some artifacts and reproductions along with an archaeologist.  

Every year, the museum devotes a temporary exhibition to a theme related to its mission. It also displays the work of local and other artists. You’ll be impressed!

There’s a wide range of educational and cultural activities, too. While archaeology is the central focus at Pointe-du-Buisson, lots of emphasis is also placed on sharing Aboriginal culture, know-how and daily lifestyles. Check out the website!

A Growing Collection
Pointe-du-Buisson is also a laboratory-reserve with 4,000 objects and more than 2 million artifacts unearthed on the site, as well as a documentation centre. And then there are its ethnological and iconographic collections, and an exceptional collection of local fossils!
