Founded in Coaticook’s Centennial year, 1964, the Beaulne Museum took the name of Denise Beaulne (1890-1981) in 1975 to honour a dedicated volunteer that contributed significantly to the museum’s development. It moved in 1976 to the splendid and historic Arthur-Osmore-Norton House, the former family home of a noted industrialist dating back to 1912. The museum specializes in period costumes and textiles, and also features works of art and regional history. Its educational service focuses on students, and the museum is proud to be a vital part of the community, a provincially recognized museum and a must-see for visitors to the region.
