The convent played a crucial part in Quebec's history - a small but interesting museum where you can learn about the growth of the convent over time from its humblest beginnings and its place as a convent school.

Beautiful church and interesting information about a cloistered community. It was interesting to see how the nuns lived and were seperated during services. A worthwhile stop during a walking tour of the upper city.

The special exhibit is on embroidery. The examples are truly astonishing. They also explain how it is done. What I really liked was seeing the templates and the finished product. The main museum details life in the boarding school. This was fascinating to see in...More

In the mid-1600's Sister Marie recognized the importance of educating females. She was way ahead of her time and established the first school for girls in North America. This was a very interesting thought provoking museum visit
