On May 17, on the occasion of the Journée nationale des Patriotes, a stop at the Stewart Museum is a must.

Soak into the atmosphere of old buildings, imposing witnesses of this historic episode, and from which came the British soldiers involved in the conflict with the Patriot insurgents.

Discover one of the richest collections of objects associated with the Patriot movement in Lower Canada. Unique artefacts are displayed such as the 1828 petition with 87,000 signatures, the portrait done by the patriot leader Jean-Joseph Girouard of Chevalier de Lorimier and a letter written by himself just a few hours before his execution.
