This is a small museum in Old Quebec City that showcases the history of the Ursuline nuns in Quebec. Nice exhibits, good displays and interesting stories make for a pleasant experience here.

A wonderful museum: VERY interesting exhibition about girls' education from 17th century... the temporary exhibition about embroidery is also very good. The photography exhibition about the nuns' life nowadays is very moving too...And wonderful staff, very helpful and welcoming. To be seen!

Good museum from the religious order that shows how the Ursulines arrived in Quebec at the seventeenth century. Some rooms are dedicated to the boarding schools for girls. Instruments and mobilia from the XIX.

We did not have time to visit the pay portion of the museum but there was a small free exhibit of the embroidery work of the Ursuline Nuns that was fascinating and beautiful.
