The mission of the Musée des Maîtres et Artisans du Québec, located in western Montréal on the Cégep Saint-Laurent campus, is to promote Quebec’s cultural heritage with artistic and artisanal traditions of yesterday and today. Its artistic objectives are to increase awareness of traditional craft and artisanal practices, as well as contemporary arts and crafts. Also, the museum accords a large place to the artistic and artisanal expression of the different local cultural communities. Its permanent exhibit, “From Masters Hands,” presents the tools, furniture, textiles, ceramics, metalwork, statues and religious ornaments that constituted the everyday lives of French-Canadians in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. An audioguide of stories told by Fred Pellerin add a surprising dimension to tours of the museum. Additionally, family workshops make it possible for children and their parents to put their shoulders to the wheel!
