To discover, see and do...

Nestled on the banks of the Saint Lawrence River, Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours Chapel and the Marguerite Bourgeoys Museum are a delight to visitors of Old Montreal. A major Montreal heritage site, it is a tribute to the history of the first settlers in New France and to the life of Marguerite Bourgeoys, a woman of courage and determination.

The Museum describes the accomplishments of the founders of Montreal.

You'll be enchanted by the beauty of the Museum setting, the collection of objects belonging to previous generations and artifacts dating back 2000 years or more.
