Museum experiences

  • Explore the domed chapel, the symbol of Vieux Trois-Rivières, and the charming ethnographic collection, which bears testimony to a way of life that was active yet monastic.
  • Visit the first hospital in Trois-Rivières, the old Hôtel-Dieu built by the Ursulines, with a different facet of their history for every year.
  • The monastery gardens, a well-kept secret in the heart of Vieux-Trois-Rivières, reflect the community’s 300-year history – the secret side of the monastery, hidden away.
