Step back in time at the Maison Saint-Gabriel Museum and Historic Site, an animated and living museum that provides a glimpse of rural life in New France.
Set amidst farmhouse gardens recreated in the spirit of the 17th century, the Maison Saint-Gabriel is the oldest example of rural habitation in Montréal. Purchased by Marguerite Bourgeoys in 1668, this two-storey fieldstone residence once housed the Filles du Roy. It is considered one of the finest examples of traditional Québec architecture existing today.
Dynamic interpreter-guides captivate visitors with interesting facts and engaging stories. The permanent exhibit highlights various collections of objects and old-fashioned works of art such as paintings, embroidery, sculptures, and objects from daily life from the 17th to 20th centuries.
Before heading back to hectic modern day life, extend your stay at the museum with a break on the outdoor terrace and enjoy a garden fresh herbal tea or cold infusion and drop by the museum’s shop and take a piece of the past home with you. Here you’ll find exclusive creations of ancient craftspeople, books on history, gastronomy and horticulture and more.
And thanks to a digital experience you can explore the area at your own pace using your smartphone and headphones.
