Present for over 50 years on Sainte-Hélène Island, the Stewart Museum
is now housed in the island’s fortified military depot. The newly renovated facilities and completely revamped exhibition come together in a new museum space that features a four-storey steel and glass tower and a lookout providing a remarkable panoramic view. Spanning more than five centuries of history, the exhibition “History and Memory” features themes that range from navigation and maritime trade to day-to-day life in New France. It presents nearly 500 objects, documents and rare books. In Quebec, the kitchen is the perfect place for get-togethers, conversations and even parties, hence the well-known expression, “kitchen party!” The Stewart Museum
is presenting the exhibition “Craving for Design: Kitchen design from the 18th century to tomorrow.” This first temporary exhibition since the museum reopened last August explores the origin and evolution of domestic kitchens in North America.
