EXHIBITIONS

A Taste of History

A multi-sensory visit for the whole family!

Our new, permanent exhibit seeks to explain and promote the history of La Grande Ferme by showcasing, side-by-side, both the rich history of the site and something that’s always been vital to us all–food! Come rediscover our collection using all your senses. Look, touch, smell, and taste your way back to the farm’s very first buildings commissioned by the founder of Séminaire de Québec (the Québec Seminary) and the owner of the Beaupré Seigneury, Monsignor François-de-Laval. The exhibit wraps up with an immersive component for kids that’s sure to delight the whole family!

June 25 to Canadian Thanksgiving, Wednesday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

After October 31: Upon reservation only

Admission: FREE

 

Discovery Circuit

What if there was a way to travel back in time? Follow the Discovery Circuit as you explore the grounds of the site. Embark on a quest that will take you on a historical tour of the breadbasket of New France. If you prefer to visit at your own pace with a tablet for company, then this tour is for you! Dig into the history of the archeological site at La Grande Ferme and follow in the footsteps of our ancestors who helped feed the fledgling colony of New France. Observe the scars left by the passage of the British during the Conquest and experience the rebirth of La Grande Ferme after it was destroyed. Take in the surprising hidden vestiges visible around the site.
