About

Maison Mère Baie-Saint-Paul is filled with the precious legacy of the Little Franciscans of Mary congregation. In the exhibition halls with podcast, the museum and heritage area highlights the origin, history and evolution of the congregation that left an important mark in Baie-Saint-Paul’s cultural landscape. A visit to the chapel, a true heritage treasure, will enchant the visitor, as will a stroll in the Jardin de François. The heritage walking tour leaves from the old Hospice Sainte-Anne, the nuns’ first living quarters, and goes to the chapel of Sacré Cœur (« Sacred Heart ») allowing the visitors to enjoy the spirit of the place while strolling among objects and hallways that bear witness of its rich past. The museum presents an exhibition which highlights the congregation’s exceptional story since its beginning in 1889 in the United States. The social and cultural footprint of over a century of commitment to the community of Baie-Saint-Paul is fascinating. All the secrets of architecture, art and history of its construction are shared on an audio guide. It is a must to better understand and appreciate Baie-Saint-Paul’s cultural landscape.
