Our mission

The mission of the Quebec’s Masters and Artisans Museum is to highlight the ingenuity and creativity of the creators and artisans of the handmade object made in Quebec, in its traditional and contemporary form. The Quebec’s Masters and Artisans Museum collects the works of craftspeople from all periods (past and present) chosen from the continuum that goes from the production of domestic craft items to works made by master craftspeople, as well as unique functional objects or objects from small series.
