Permanent exhibit

Augustinian Sisters: Healing Body and Soul

Tracing the evolution of the spiritual and social engagement of the Augustinian Sisters of Quebec through the ages, the permanent exhibition offers a unique glimpse into the past. Discover the community’s way of life, their work caring for the sick, and how they balanced their traditional vocations for action and contemplation.

Throughout the rooms, objects and archives from their monasteries-hospitals illustrate many different themes. The museographic concept of the museum is designed to provoke thought and allow visitors to immerse themselves in the place.

Temporary exhibition until December 31, 2025


Re-Cueillir is a temporary exhibit that covers the theme of relaxation and renewal. Based on a museotherapy approach, it is inspired by the contrast between action and contemplation experienced by the Augustinian Sisters. Through archives and artifacts, Re-Cueillir allows visitors to experience the duality that gave rhythm to the lives of the Augustinians as they constantly oscillated between caring for the sick in the hospital and contemplation in Le Monastère.
