The beggars are passing through town for a meal and for two afternoons of storytelling.

You will not want to miss the chance to meet these characters from Quebec’s rural past. The professional storytellers who embody them will provide you with unique entertainment.

These artists highlight an important aspect of Quebec culture. They spark the imagination and incite laughter. Their wordplay transports you to a magical world of fantasy.

The museum offers you a journey back in time where beliefs and traditions of another era are brought to mind. Come with family or friends and participate in one of the three activities. Young and young at heart will be captivated by our presenters’ performances.
