Musée des Ursulines

12, rue Donnacona, Québec, QC G1R 3Y7

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.

In January 26th, 1979, the Musée des Ursulines de Québec became the first museum of religious community in the province to be accredited by the Department of Cultural Affairs (now Ministry of Culture and Communications (MCCQ, 1994).
