Montre antique Musée Beaulne Coaticook

Artifacts and works of art

The total of our collections is estimated at more than 17,000 objects.

The objects in the collections are not all on permanent display. They are mostly kept in storage rooms and are occasionally brought out to refurbish the permanent exhibit or to create thematic exhibits.

The collections can be divided into three broad categories: textiles and costumes, various artefacts from local heritage and visual art, divided as follows:

Donation of the month

Each month we will present an object that has been generously donated to the Museum.

 

Here is the donation for the month of December…Let’s take a walk in the woods!


Winter sports are all the rage throughout the month of December. Whether indoors (arenas) or outdoors, athletes rejoice every year by skiing, snowmobiling and especially snowshoeing.

Snowshoeing was one of the most popular means of travel for Native Americans and to do this they needed sturdy, warm and waterproof boots. Mukluks or kamik are soft boots traditionally made from caribou skin.

Boots dating from 1970c / Donated by Josée Pilote
