Case Study 3

Economuseums attract 850,000 visitors a year!

  • Economuseums form a thriving network of craft workshops and local product museums in Quebec and Atlantic Canada that share the same guidelines.
  • At each economuseum, artisans reveal the history of their craft and demonstrate traditional skills to the public.
  • Economuseums range from violin making, bookbinding, brewing, leather tanning, pewter manufacturing to harvesting wild berries. Each also sells the goods made on site.
  • They offer authenticity, learning, heritage and support for the local economy.
  • There is a great potential for developing more of these throughout Canada!
