There are multiple free parking spots in front of the Lac-Brome Museum on Chemin Lakeside. There are a few other additional spots available on Chemin St. Paul just around the corner in front of the Old Courthouse.



The LBM is committed to working towards an accessible environment for all. All of our buildings have limited access for those who are mobility-challenged. However, both the Old County Courthouse and the Centennial Building (including the Temporary Exhibition) have access ramps. The Temporary Exhibition space is step-free.
