In a few words

A visit to the Minero Museum would not be complete without a visit to its boutique. You will find souvenirs from the region, such as magnificent postcards, sweaters, but also beautiful stones from here and elsewhere as well as collections of different formats. On the jewelry side, an astonishing variety of semi-precious stones is in the spotlight such as amethyst, abalone, agate, obsidian, hematite and rose quartz, to name a few. In utility or decorative stone objects, you will find bookends, clocks, sculptures, key rings, etc. You will also find a wide selection of abundantly illustrated books on minerals, geology and the history of the region. Finally, the amateur prospector can obtain tools for prospecting and identifying rocks and minerals, such as hammers, magnifying glasses, hardness points, etc.

Du haut de ses 146 ans, la ville de Thetford Mines est encore toute jeune. Malgré le fait qu’elle ne fasse pas partie des plus vieilles villes du Québec, Thetford Mines est très riche en histoire. En effet, cette municipalité de la MRC des Appalaches fut pendant plusieurs années, une des régions minières les plus importantes au Québec. Pendant près d’un siècle, ce sont ses importants gisements d’amiante qui ont fait sa renommée, mais qu’en est-il aujourd’hui? Qu’est-ce qui fait qu’on veut visiter Thetford? Eh bien, j’ai plusieurs réponses pour vous et elles se trouvent dans cet article!
