An exhibition that pays tribute to René Lévesque

As part of the celebrations surrounding the 100th anniversary of the birth of this larger-than-life politician, the Musée de la civilisation, in collaboration with the Fondation René-Lévesque, presents René et Lévesque. Through the presentation of archival documents and significant objects, some of which belonged to the politician, the exhibition will shed light on the key stages in the life of René Lévesque up until his death in 1987. Discover little-known facets of his personality and character traits that shaped him as a human being, a son, a father, a man of the people and a great public politician. How did René become Lévesque? Find the answers in this powerful and sensitive exhibition running from November 17, 2022 to September 4, 2023.
