Ursuline Museum

Description

Located at a convent founded in 1639, this museum offers a perspective on 120 years of the Ursuline Order, from 1639 to 1759. Exhibits tell the story of the early days of New France. The museum contains a magnificent collection of ornate embroidery done by the sisters of the order, such as altar frontals with gold and silver threads intertwined with precious stones. The convent is still operated as a private school for girls. Also on the grounds is a chapel where the French general Montcalm was buried after he died in battle in 1759. His remains were later reinterred at Quebec General Hospital Cemetery.
