The Museum’s Christmas Market


The Museum’s Christmas Market

Welcome to the Museum’s Christmas Market, a great place to make your holiday purchases in a relaxed and festive atmosphere. Some 50 local food producers and artisans await you, with stalls abounding in delicious edibles and unique handmade creations.

Enjoy performances by young musicians from the Conservatoire de musique de Gatineau, Dickens carollers in period costume, folksongs by La Ridaine, and clowning around by the Sisters of Christmas. Santa Claus has promised to visit on December 7 and 8 – so don’t forget to bring your wish list.

The Museum’s Christmas Market is a treat for the senses that you won’t want to miss!
