The Thetford Mines Mining Museum is a unique Science Centre that makes it possible to make travelling exhibitions by Quebec and Canadian museums accessible to the regional population as well as initiate many related popular and educational activities. 

Through its impressive collection of minerals, rocks, fossils and unique artefacts, the Museum allows visitors to travel through the very heart of the Appalachians and its heritage.

Since 2016, the Museum has also included the new King Mine Historic Centre among these exhibition sites to visit. This former underground mining site dating back to the 1930s was renovated to allow a complete visit of the buildings and artefacts from the long mining tradition of the region.
