Museum Marius Barbeau

"The Beauce, land of legends and promise"

The Marius Barbeau Museum is the largest museum in the Great Beauce

Who was Marius Barbeau ?

Born in 1883 in Sainte-Marie, in the Beauce region, Marius Barbeau was one of the most distinguished ethnographers of his generation in Canada.
His goal was to make known and appreciated the traditional cultures before they disappeared. Although his research focused mainly on amerindian culture, his contribution to French-Canadian folklore was also quite considerable.

Employed for many years by the National Museum of Canada, Marius Barbeau widely published the results of his research and enriched the collections of both private and public museums with numerous artifacts.

Since its creation in 1978, the Beauce regional museum has been dedicated to illustrating and interpreting the history of the Chaudière Valley through its displays of the traditions and customs of its inhabitants.
The objects collected over the years recall the rich history of the region and testify to the art and traditions of the people of the Beauce. The collection which is presented to you is grouped into three (3) categories:

  • ACÉRIMAPLE SYRUP PRODUCTION
  • RELIGIOUS ART
  • TRADITIONAL CRAFTS

Three (3) other remaining rooms present temporary exhibits
