MusÃ©e de l'AmÃ©rique franÃ§aise
The MusÃ©e de l'AmÃ©rique francaise, the oldest museum in Canada, has its roots in European religious and educational traditions.back to previous page
Its first collection of scientific instruments intended for educational purposes dates back to 1806. Through the years, numerous collections were assembled, such as ancient coins and medals, mineralogy, geology, numismatic, zoology, and botanical collections, as well as fossils, paintings, ethnology and ancient books. Today, these unique witnesses to the past are part of a collection entrusted to the Musée de la civilisation, of which the Musée de l'Amérique francaise has been a component since 1995.
