The Museum


Since 1992, the Good Shepherd Museum has been telling the captivating story of the Congregation of the Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, also known as Good Shepherd Sisters of Quebec. This religious community was founded in Quebec City in 1850 by a woman of Quebec, Marie-Joseph Fitzbach. The museum also tells the story of marginalized women and abandoned children in 19th and 20th century Quebec.

The museum is housed in a building of historic interest located near some of Old Quebec's leading tourist attractions (the Château Frontenac, the Citadelle, the Musée de l'Amérique française, the Cathedral Basilica, etc.). Round out your heritage tour with a visit to the Museum's three floors of exhibits. The Museum personnel will be pleased to offer individual and group visits. A special program for students features activities and visits that are as fascinating as they are educational.
