On site you will see racing cars, an F1 simulator, a racing boutique and more. On the road to Berthierville, discover the most important racing vars collection of the country!"
Opened in 2005, this museum houses a large collection of automotive and petroleum industry memorabilia, donated to the municipality by local collector Jim Pearn.
" The Museum is home to one of the most extensive antique automobile collections in North America and attracts thousands of visitors every year who take a walk into the past and relive many memories of yesteryear."
The museum's basic responsibilities of stewardship and public service are expressed by preserving, documenting and interpreting artifacts and archival materials that help to build an understanding of the history of policing in Ontario since the formation of Upper Canada in 1791, specializing in the material culture of the Ontario Provincial Police from 1909.
Update 2022: the museum is closed for renovation. Will be reopened later this year.
