«The largest art gallery in Abitibi-Témiscamingue».
101, 3e Avenue Est, Amos
This historic building that was built in 1922 served as the first court house in the region. This Beaux-arts style building was once a courthouse, and also contained cells for prisoners and a registry office. The Old Courthouse today houses the Harricana Art Museum and Historium. One the one hand, you can admire the talent of artists from here and elsewhere, as well as several works by world-famous painter, Jean-Paul Riopelle. On the other hand, discover thematic exhibitions on Abitibi’s history, including a collection of surgical instruments used in the Amos Hospital at the beginning of the last century.
