Musée des Ursulines de Québec

The Musée des Ursulines de Québec offers various guided tours, all of which allow participants to explore our exhibitions in greater depth or discover more specifically certain aspects of the history and heritage of the Ursulines of Quebec.

The Musée des Ursulines de Québec is an art and history museum whose mission is to preserve and present the rich heritage of the oldest teaching order in the province, based in Quebec city since 1639.

With their first museum in 1936, the Ursulines revealed a treasure that had never before been shown to the general public. Through these summer exhibitions, which were seen through the grills of the monastery’s parlour, the sisters sought to present to Quebec’s population a heritage from a common past.

First female teachers for girls in North America and the first occupants of Quebec City with the Augustine sisters, Jesuits and settlers, the Ursulines of Quebec have a collection whose value far exceeds the story of a religious order in Quebec and Canada.
