Description :

  • The Gilles-Villeneuve Museum opened its doors to the public in 1988.

  • On the initiative of members of the Berthier-Villeneuve comity regrouping volunteers and friends who knew Gilles Villeneuve, the museum followed the inauguration of Gilles-Villeneuves park and statue (a real size bronze).

  • Berthierville will never forget the champion.

  • Rapidly, the museum located in the old post office became too small.
