Musée de l'Amérique francophone is part of the broader Musées de la civilisation complex in Quebec City and focuses specifically on the evolution of French-speaking culture in both the province of Quebec and North America. It is housed inside a former seminary dating back to 1663, technically making the museum Canada’s oldest. It promotes the development of French culture around the world and offers invaluable information on the colonial history of the Americas, all while allowing the traditional Quebec arts & crafts to shine through. There are many permanent and temporary exhibitions inside the museum, notably in the historic chapel, which serves as a beautiful backdrop.
