Lennox and Addington County Museum and Archives Exhibition

Tales of Fantasy
Until September 4, 2021 (10:00 AM - 5:00 PM)

This special exhibit, travelling from the Sherbrooke Museum of Nature and Science, is sure to leave your imagination soaring. 

“Once Upon A Time” was the first means of literacy for people. Oral legends created from one teller to another, they travel and evolve as time goes by. Over the past few years, storytellers, authors and musicians have contributed to the revival of oral traditions. They are bringing back to life a whole spectrum of our cultural heritage. This now allows these forgotten legends and myths of our nations to come back to life and be recognized.

The exhibition dives at the heart of legends and myths, through stories captured from the Quebec, Canadian and natives’ heritage. Visitors will be able to leave reality for a moment to explore uncharted territories created by the various storytellers’ imagination. This exhibition will focus on a world inhabited by weird and scary creatures, strange phenomenon and characters with strange magical powers...


Thank you to the Department of Canadian Heritage and the Museum Assistance Program who have partly funded this exhibition.
