  • If your going to St. Anne's stop here and get some history on the beautiful doors at the Basilica! It's on the way from Quebec City 
  • Through a tour through Eastern Canada, the travel group in which ran Albert Gilles copper Art & Museum. After a twenty minute demonstration of the art of printing on a piece of copper (NB: learn art education children in the basic school subject), you can buy very expensive copper souvenirs. Only interesting point is that the family-run company has manufactured the doors of the nearby Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de Beaupré. Conclusion: to the "pee-pee" stop it enough.

  • Famous Canadian artist working with copper. Significant talent to create these beautiful works.
  • If you're heading to the Saint-Anne-de-Beaupré Shrine then you should stop in here first because Albert Gilles was the man behind the repousée work on the enormous doors of the basilica. He passed away a while back and now his daughter and grand-daughters are keeping the art of repousée alive. Some of the works on display are particularly impressive - the most unforgettable part of your visit will be the story of christ as told by Albert Gilles on a series of about four dozen repousée panels displayed in a dedicated room at the back of the museum. A wide range of pieces are on sale, from affordable copper jewelry to pieces which are so impressive you don't even ask the price. Stop in and visit - the story of christ is impressive and when you get to the basilica you'll be all the more impressed.
  • Interesting place describing wonderful works of art. Regular outside, but a lot of beautiful discoveries indoors.
