Hidden Gem
Sep. 2019
We stopped in the Rug Hooking Museum and took a tour. Beautiful collection of rugs by Elizabeth LeFort and others. We were treated to a rug hooking demonstration. Amazing work hangs in this museum and at the Vatican, White House & other notable places. The quality of the work is stunning. So glad we stopped here. The museum also has a collection of artifacts and Acadian history .

What a find!
Jul. 2019
We stopped for some local information and found we had not only happened on to an interesting museum of the area but a rug hooking demonstration as well. Here we were able to learn more of the Acadian history of Cheticamp. Featured was a fascinating collection of antique objects that were "inherited" by the museum from Marguerite Gallant as well as the impressive collection of hooked rugs by Elizabeth LeFort. Her rugs were so beautifully executed that they could be mistaken by photographs of famous people including the presidents of the United States. Then we watched a lady actually hooking a rug and she was very willing to answer our questions about the process.

Even Men Enjoy it-MUST SEE
Jul. 2019 • Friends
This museum is dedicated to the hook-rug industry. Cheticamp is world famous for the local hand-made hook rugs. I wasn’t particularly interested in visiting this museum but I am very glad that I did. Their artisan craftwork was amazing and their work hangs in capitals throughout the world. They have one that includes the portraits of every American president and the flags of each state. There are scenic rugs, portrait rugs, etc and a section of the Kennedy family and many NASA astronauts. They are truly amazing and are an art form that originated in the Cheticamp area. This is a MUST SEE museum.

Small museum displaying hooked rugs made in the area. Docent gives demonstration of how the rugs are made. Seeing the process makes you appreciate the work even more.

Charming museum in Cheticamp
Jul. 2019 • Couples
We loved this small museum that talks about the local history and has a collection of hooked rugs. The young man at the front desk was warm, welcoming and answered many of our questions. He also gave a quick demo of rug hooking. Definitely worth a visit.

Acadian History and Art
Jun. 2019 • Couples
I really enjoyed hearing and reading about the history of the Acadian people and their drive to preserve their home and culture.
The museum was very interesting and I enjoyed the demonstration of rug hooking. I especially enjoyed the rug-hooked artwork of Elizabeth LeFort. What a wonderful gift she had and it is great to see that so much of her work has been preserved.
This was a great history lesson for me as I didn't know much about the Acadian people after they were expelled.
I'm sure the original returnees would be so proud of their descendants and what they have accomplished over the years.

Astounding craft work!
Jun. 2019 • Couples
This museum does a great job describing the history and origins of rug hooking while bringing to light the local men and women to whom this museum is dedicated. The many displayed examples are progressively more amazing. It was very enlightening to experience the demonstration by an expert and dishearteningly understandable to learn that the art is not embraced by the next generation. I was grateful for our time in the shop after our tour and would have lingered longer had the group allowed!

worth the visit
May 2019 • Family
great museum in Acadian village of Cheticamp. Very welcoming, warm and interesting staff. great depiction of early life in the village with vignettes and implements of the era

great interpretive staff to demonstrate the art of hooking and being a local person, very knowledgeable about the hooking industry in Cheticamp and its slow demise due to outside influences.

we only had a quick 30 min for an overview, truly an interesting overview on a way of life for these more isolated communities.

worth the visit to marvel at the craftmanship, very well displayed

A Must see in Cheticamp
Sep. 2018 • Business
Les Trois Pignons is great stop for families and adults alike. Tours are personalized and adapted to your interests and timeframe. The rug hookings are absolutely over-the-top in detail and display and the in-costume guides are knowledgeable and interesting. You can do it in an hour but should make more time to get the most out of it. There is a demo on the tour -- most interesting. And the gift shop has something for all price points.
