Located at the site of the first Jesuit mission, which was founded in 1637 to convert the nomadic Aboriginal peoples and encourage them to establish permanent communities, the Maison des Jésuites de Sillery has a permanent exhibition that traces the history of the mission as it pursued its activities throughout most of the 17th century. The artefacts on display tell of the relationship among the Jesuit, Europeans and local Native population. A temporary exhibition features Native legends illustrated by Jean-Claude Dupont, ethnologist and painter.
