Surprising and accessible activities in Laval

Musée de la santé Armand-Frappier

Inspired by the legacy of Dr. Armand Frappier, this museum is a place that encourages scientific popularization. It offers inspiring and educational exhibits and lab activities. Visitors learn about health-related science, think about health issues and what they can do to contribute to their own well-being and that of their communities. Pathways are barrier-free and all sections of the museum are accessible. The washrooms located on the ground and second floors are adapted.

The museum’s activities now take place in new, spacious and modern facilities adjacent to the Cosmodome in Laval. While maintaining the human approach it has built its reputation on since 1994, the museum offers visitors a renewed, dynamic and enriching educational program.
