This museum was opened in 1988 in Old Quebec, next to the St. Lawrence River, to help promote and showcase French culture and history. Designed by the Israeli/Canadian architect Moshe Safdie, the programinng comprises permanent and temporary exhibitions focusing on culture and how it's shaped us. The displays are world class—the 2015 Egyptian Magic exhibition included pieces from the Louvre and was one of the largest and most diverse assemblages of Egyptian artifacts in the world. The permanent exhibition "People of Québec," focusing on aboriginal history in the province, is well-worth spending time in.
