The Musée Beaulne is located in Coaticook, a municipality of the Eastern Townships in Quebec, Canada. Its mission is to preserve and present textiles and costumes, as well as to promote local heritage and the visual arts. The Museum is housed in a sumptuous bourgeois residence, the Arthur Osmore Norton Castle.
The Museum’s permanent exhibition relates the history and achievements of the Norton family, who were the original owners. Industrialist and philanthropist Arthur Osmore Norton made his fortune manufacturing a railway jack that was invented in Coaticook. His two children, Harry and Mary Helen, carried on his work and particularly his philanthropic activities. The Museum also presents some 15 temporary exhibitions annually. It is open throughout the year.
