Musée québécois de l'agriculture et de l'alimentation

Attractions and Activities

The Quebec Museum of Agriculture and Food, housed in a former convent behind the Collège de Sainte-Anne-de-la-Pocatière, offers you to discover different facets of its theme through exhibitions or activities.

Until January 2017, we invite you not to miss the exhibition "Word of mouth… and Goodies galore". This route-exhibition includes the classic tales (Grimm, Perrault, etc.) to lead us to the Breton and French Canadian storytelling. The visitors, young and old, will find themselves immersed in a fantastic world where the big question is: eat or be eaten! Have fun browsing this show adapted from a concept presented in 2015 at the Kernault Manor, member of Chemins du Patrimoine en Finistère, France.
Located near the site of Canada’s first permanent agricultural college, the museum is devoted to preserving and sharing knowledge and know-how related to food and agriculture. It features permanent exhibits on the rural life of yesteryear and a new interactive exhibit on the role of food in the fantastic world of fairy tales. Group rates available. Open by appointment only during the off-season.

Otherwise, do not miss our permanent exhibitions where our rich collections will discover traditional Quebec rural parish, the beginnings of agricultural education, the history of maple syrup production, the evolution of agricultural implements, stuffed animals and many other things.
