The Quebec’s Masters and Artisans Museum is expanding!
In 2010, thanks to a 3.55 million dollar contribution from Quebec’s Ministère de la Culture, des Communications et de la Condition féminine, the Quebec’s Masters and Artisans Museum was able to begin construction of its brand new reserves in the Saint-Laurent borough.
With this project the museum sought to create a new space to conserve and protect the museum’s collections, composed of more than 10,000 objects of great historical and cultural significance. The program also involved the construction of the Boisé Library, and Lethbridge exhibition centre, designed to comply with museum standards.
Ministers Christine St-Pierre and Jean-Marc Fournier, Member of Parliament Stéphane Dion, Saint-Laurent borough mayor Alan DeSousa and his city councillors, as well as, representing the city of Montreal, Mrs. Helen Fotopoulos, were all present at the groundbreaking ceremony to show their support for the new cultural centre.
Ever since construction was completed in the fall of 2013, the museum has been able to make the most of its new facilities.
This new development was created thanks to a novel partnership between the Saint-Laurent borough and the Quebec’s Masters and Artisans Museum.
The first of its kind in Quebec!
