The Museum, founded in 1974, was formerly called the François-Pilote Museum, in honor of this man who, in 1859, established in La Pocatière the first permanent agricultural school in Canada. In 2011, the Museum initiated a process of reorientation, so that it now proudly salutes the enormous work carried out by tha man, concentrating his efforts and resources around the themes of agriculture and food.
Located near the site of the first permanent agricultural school in Canada, the Museum presents permanent exhibitions on the life of the rural parish of yesteryear, without forgetting the agricultural and scientific education component as well as the naturalized animal section.
The museum promotes knowledge and practices related to agriculture and food. An exhibition traces the history of the CHGB radio station of La Pocatière, which was one of the first rural radio stations and whose origin has very strong links with the School of Agriculture. For many years, it produced the program “From one sun to another” on behalf of Radio-Canada to which it was affiliated.
Among the new exhibitions the public can go to the discovery of mushrooms and their history with "Mycelium" and "Tour de table en 175 ans" illustrates the history of the municipality of Sainte-Anne-de-la-Pocatière with so many objects.
