The Cosmodome is the only attraction in Canada devoted entirely to space exploration. It offers the opportunity to participate in interactive, educational missions by travelling virtually in space. In addition to an exhibition on the solar system and its planets, the Cosmodome offers three virtual missions: the first will take you back in time, the second will propel you into orbit, while the third invites you to join the first mission to Mars. For kids and adults alike, the Cosmodome is sure to inspire an interest in outer space, science, and why not, a career in astronautics!

The Pied-de-Vent cheese factory, located in the enchanting setting of Havre-aux-Maisons, is the third ECONOMUSÉE to open its doors in the Magdalen Islands. Its artisans, Jérémie and Lucie Arseneau, offer you, in addition to their famous Pied-de-Vent cheese, the Tomme des Demoiselles and the Jeune Coeur. These cheeses are made from whole raw milk, without chemical additives, from a single dairy herd fed on the islands' terroir. The cows are definitely the real stars there. Take the tour to learn the secrets of making these authentic, organic products.

In the fall, the colours are always flamboyant at this regional park! The Forêt ancienne (old forest) sector in Plessisville is the place to be for families. It has 10 km of flat hiking trails, 18 obstacle course modules and a perfect place for a picnic. And good news: dogs on a leash are welcome! The Grande tourbière de Villeroy sector is also a must-see area at the Parc regional des Grandes-Coulées where you can admire the fauna and flora. Being in the heart of an open peat bog that is otherwise inaccessible is a unique experience!
