Our museums speak volumes about our past and present...

Our art, history and natural science museums and our economuseums allow you to gain a better understanding of Québec society, our history and our art. International exhibitions will transport you around the world. Others, more local, showcase Québec and Indigenous lifestyles and customs. Our heritage sites also teach us about Québec’s history.
