Health is a fundamental right of every human being. Unfortunately, not everyone has access to it. Yet it is everyone’s business, everywhere, at all times!

The 4, 3, 2, 1… Santé! exhibition invites you to discover the four scales of human health: molecules and cells, individuals, populations, and the planet. Following in the footsteps of Dr. Armand Frappier, a microbiology and public health pioneer in Quebec, you will become aware of health issues and better understand them.

Fun, discovery, and learning will be on the agenda of this interactive tour that will encourage you to take concrete actions to maintain your health, but also that of others, of the planet, and all the species that inhabit it.



To your microscopes: The mystery recipe!

This microscopy workshop focuses on health at the cellular level. Accompanied by a scientific facilitator, visitors discover and learn about the microscope, an indispensable tool for scientists observing the infinitely small. In the course of their observations, they realize that in the manufacturing process of certain foods, there are microorganisms that are indispensable while others alter them. Amazed by their discoveries, young and old alike learn the mystery recipe.
