Museum of French America
The beautiful Museum of French America (Le Musee de l'Amerique française) offers many multidisciplinary insights into the history of North America's French communities. There are two permanent exhibits: The Settling of French America is a multimedia trip from France to the colonies, while The History of the Collections Seminaire de Quebec boasts an unmatched assortment of religious art and scientific instruments. Guided tours are available in both French and English.
Visited on a Tuesday when entrance is free. Quite interesting but not really a lot there. Housed in the old Catholic seminary and concentrates mostly on the education of the boys and the Catholic faith.
If you decide to venture into the second part of this museum you will not be disapointed: the exhibit that hightlighted quebecois and other french-speaking canadian and u.s. communities was superb. I am a museum person, and this particular exhibit has my highest recommendation. The objects, images, texts, and media used to portray the stories of francophone north america are engaging, and the topics are thought provoking.
It is also in a great location, close to a host other things that will grab the attention of a visitor to this wondeful city.
