Overview

This charming museum chronicles the arrival and work of the Ursuline nuns in Quebec. Arriving in New France in 1639, the Ursulines sought to spread their religious message to the Natives, and pioneered education for girls in Canada. Ursulines Museum houses an impressive selection of religious art, including embroideries and sculpture. Rooms have been restored to their spartan 17th-century decorations in order to give visitors an idea of the lifestyle led by these women missionaries of frontier times. The Ursuline Chapel is located next door.
