Musée des pionniers

20 Bourgeois St., Saint-André-Avellin (Québec), Canada

Surrounded by maple trees shading the statue of the guardian angel dominating the Petite Nation, the museum houses hundreds of artifacts that capture the traditions of 19th-century pioneers. Linking the wooded trail and the mill lookout, a superb footbridge crosses the river and leads to the Saint-André-Avellin heritage route. Ingenious agricultural tools and equipment are displayed in a utility shed, while an old-fashioned gazebo welcomes speakers and choirs during holidays and other festivities.
