Overview

Maison Saint-Gabriel, museum and historic site, opened its doors in 1966. Located in Pointe-Saint-Charles, this magnificent 300-year-old building is one of the finest examples of the traditional architecture of New France. Purchased by Marguerite Bourgeoys in 1668 to house the King’s Wards, it lay at the heart of the agricultural and educational activities of the Congrégation de Notre-Dame for three centuries.

If it was free, I'd say pass by if you are in the area. However, there is not much to see and it is grossly over-priced. Nice building and pleasant tiny gardens, but seriously lacking in any true value and I live 15 minutes away....More

You'd never expect to see a gem like this in the middle of the city! The craftsmanship of this building is absolutely amazing. The historical factor, and stories that go with this place are so interesting. Please make this a place to see!!!

Yes - it is literally in the middle of an urban city - you would never know it existed, but is nearby transit lines.
