Musée d'histoire de Sherbrooke
Bringing together 600 documentary funds, a large collection of newspapers and more than a million photographs, the Mhist - Sherbooke History Museum highlights the historical heritage of the Sherbrooke region through various exhibitions and events.
Scandals and prejudices
From May 26, 2021 to October 24, 2021
Every scandal contains its share of prejudices and yet these are largely linked to the social norms of its time. From the square of the Elise to the Internet, everyone expresses himself and judges on the transgression of the established order. The exhibition runs through these perceptions, from media coverage of murder to banning women from riding bicycles. It's up to you to choose, depending on the themes and your values, which points of view you subscribe to.
