Discover life in New France

Come and take a partial guided tour of the oldest example of rural architecture in Montreal!

Your guide, dressed in period costume, will tell you about the daily lives of the people who lived in this former farmhouse. Acquired by Marguerite Bourgeoys in 1668, it was home to the King's Wards. You'll fall under its spell.

Our house presents a rich heritage of rural life from the 17th to the 20th century. It's a unique opportunity to discover the past of rural Montreal. Come and admire the old objects on display as if they had been used the day before.

The adventure of the Filles du Roy has never seemed so authentic. The story of the exploits of the farm sisters will astonish you. Called tenant farmers, they provided for the teaching sisters of the Congrégation de Notre-Dame for nearly three centuries.

Discover the common room, kitchen and living room, the three rooms on the ground floor. Then complete your experience by consulting the audio guide on your mobile phone or tablet. Weather permitting, opt for a bench in the gardens or the comfort of the Catherine-Crolo pavilion. The audioguide allows you to listen to and view content about rooms in the house that are not accessible.
