Another good season
The Bagotville Air Defense Museum has had a good season as tourism winds down with the last few international boats coming into the port in La Baie. The tourist season had begun in full force thanks to the Bagotville International Air Show, which attracted many people to the museum. During the summer, more than 12,000 people visited the Museum's exhibitions. We will add a few thousand foreign visitors coming in until the end of October from the boats and we can forecast an average year of traffic for the 2017 season. However, the Bagotville Museum has done exceptional when it comes to social media attendance. With the animation of the museum's website, as well as the Facebook and Twitter pages, more than 182,500 Internet users watched news and publications related to Bagotville and military aviation during the past year which is double the number of visitors recorded in 2016.
