Here’s a cultural outing the whole family will love! In one afternoon, you can relive the past in Knowlton, the historic heart of Brome Lake, and learn how people in the region lived in the early 19th century.
The Brome County Museum comprises several historical buildings: the Old Fire Hall; the Children’s Museum; the War Museum (Martin Annex), which houses a World War I biplane in perfect condition and the largest collection of artifacts outside the Canadian War Museum; the former County Court House, built in 1858; the old Knowlton Academy; and the log cabin that belonged to Paul Holland Knowlton, the village’s founder. A short drive from Knowlton, on the western shore of Brome Lake, you can also visit the Tibbits Hill Pioneer Schoolhouse.
Starting July 8th, any visitor or groups providing a receipt from a local business with an address within the Town of Lac-Brome will get free admission to the BCHS. The only thing required is that the visit coincides with the date on the receipt. Only one receipt is necessary to receive free admission. This initiative will run the remainder of the summer season, from July 8th to October 12th, 2020.
During the pandemic, the Children’s Museum is available online only, in order to respect the sanitary recommendations.
The Centennial Building, built in 1967, houses the ticket office, a gift shop, a small exhibition room and the offices of the Brome County Historical Society.
