Guylaine Archambault, General Director of the Armand-Frappier Museum, was recently featured in an article highlighting her as the ‘Personality of the Week’ for her success in becoming the museum’s Director. She started out at the museum as a Facilitator; today, she is piloting a 10 million dollar project for the relocation and expansion of the museum.

The Armand-Frappier Museum was established to educate the public about Dr. Armand Frappier, a pioneer in the field of preventative medicine and vaccination in Quebec. Growing up with a veterinarian father and teacher mother, Archambault was surrounded by science and education, thus stirring up her initial interest in science education and facilitation. Over the past 20 years, Guylaine Archambault followed the progress of the museum and also earned an MBA along the way.

She has led the institution to broaden its mandate, presenting exhibitions dealing with medicine and science, including the Us and Them: From prejudice to racism exhibit which raises scientific perspective on racism and why the phenomenon occurs in societies across the globe. She proudly leads her team to promote the museum’s mission to disseminate and value knowledge, promote critical thinking, inspire innovation and ultimately help shape an inclusive and sustainable future.
