Take a stroll in a large park and look through different lenses to see significant events of Québec’s history, ranging from its territory, its occupation, its battles and its evolution to its current modern issues.

This exhibition about Québec is centred around the theme of encounters: encounters from the past that shaped the present and the future; encounters between peoples, nations and communities, individuals, beliefs and mindsets; heated, identity-based, festive, hurtful and uniting encounters; encounters that were hoped for, impromptu, celebrated or hidden . . . many occasions to learn, to question ourselves, to be surprised and amazed!

A land of life and beauty, bearer of stories and tales, whose uniqueness shines through its environment and peoples:

  • who inhabit its various regions
  • who live together despite their differences
  • who exchange food and knowledg
  • who share their resources and their hopes
  • who protest for their territory and their identity
  • who belong to a country, to a community.

The exhibition tour shares the encounters through six pavilions with different themes: Inhabiting, Living, Exchanging, Sharing, Protesting and Belonging.

The Commission de la capitale nationale du Québec presents the Cartier-Roberval archaeological site, where two worlds meet.

Look differently at the first encounters between Europeans and Indigenous peoples on the territory that is known today as Québec.

An exhibition designed and created by the Musée de la civilisation with the financial support of the ministère de la Culture et des Communications. In other words, Québec is presented in collaboration with the Commission de la capitale nationale du Québec and Aliments du Québec.
