On July 13th the Musée Armand-Frappier located in Laval, PQ held a press conference to announce $390,000 in government funding that will contribute to the development of the museums next permanent exhibition.

"We welcome this important financial support and warmly thank the Government of Quebec. The support will allow us to create a permanent exhibition that will make known the work of Dr. Frappier and will shine the mission of our institution, to promote understanding of scientific issues related to human health,” spoke Guylaine Archambault, CEO of the Musée Armand-Frappier. “The exhibition will be highly technological, interactive and resolutely contemporary, in order to allow our visitors to marvel at the great beauty and fragility of the human being. It will lead visitors to realize that science alone does not bring all solutions and that everyone has to take care of himself. This was Dr. Frappier's vision.”

The exhibition, with its work title “À échelle humaine” ( On a Human Scale), will come to life over the next two years and will be presented to visitors in 2020, when the Museum's new facilities open on the site of the Cosmodome.
