The Stewart Museum Collection Visited by Jérôme Fortin

Explore a mysterious a space and discover more than 370 extraordinary and eclectic objects from the Museum's collections. This original exhibition, created in collaboration with Quebec artist Jérôme Fortin, is inspired by 16thth-century cabinets of curiosities.

They often contained antiquities, natural history objects such as stuffed animals, skeletons, herbaria, fossils and works of art.
