Meet Marguerite !


Welcome to the Marguerite Bourgeoys Museum ! A place dedicated to the life and work of this exceptional woman who inspired people around the world.

Marguerite Bourgeoys was an audacious, avant-gardist woman who dared to realize her dreams despite the social constraints of her time. As early as 1659, she formed a community of uncloistered women, an unusual initiative for the time, to ensure the continuity of her educational work.

In our museum, you can explore the captivating story of Marguerite Bourgeoys, from her beginnings in France to her arrival in Nouvelle-France and the founding of her congregation, the Congrégation de Notre-Dame.

Our permanent exhibition features artifacts and works of art related to the life of Marguerite Bourgeoys, as well as testimonials from people who were touched by her work. In addition to the permanent exhibition, you'll have the opportunity to visit the Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours chapel, an important place of pilgrimage for Montrealers for over three centuries. Founded by Marguerite Bourgeoys in 1655, the chapel bears witness to her commitment to the community and her devotion to the Virgin Mary.

We invite you to discover the inspiring story of Marguerite Bourgeoys and explore her educational and social legacy in our museum with our audio guides. Reserve your ticket now or contact us for more information.

We look forward to welcoming you !
