On our visit to this museum (Sunday September 3rd- 2pm Tour) we were shocked to be treated with such disrespect. The receptionist was so rude, really unhelpful which makes no sense as she is working front of desk in a popular tourist location. However, the...More

Many travelers, including Americans and English-speaking Canadians, know little if anything about the amazing story of French-speaking North America. This museum aims to inform visitors on how large parts of North America were explored and settled by French-speaking explorers, trappers, settlers, etc. It offers a...More
