Louis Hébert and Marie Rollet

400th anniversary of the arrival of the first French family in Québec, 1617‒2017

In partnership with the Commission franco-québécoise des lieux de mémoire communs, Musée de l'Amérique francophone presents the exhibition Louis Hébert and Marie Rollet, on this 400th anniversary of the Héberts' arrival in New France.

In 1617, Louis Hébert, his wife Marie Rollet and their three children moved into a house built in what is today Séminaire de Québec's courtyard, the very site that Musée de l'Amérique francophone is built on. The exhibition retraces the life of the Hébert-Rollet family from Paris to their departure for the New World and their settlement in Québec City. The exhibition highlights Louis Hébert's fascinating work as an apothecary and the family's relationships with Aboriginal peoples. A captivating story that takes place in the heart of a special site bearing witness to the first French family to permanently settle in New France!

The texts and the selection of the illustrations presented in this exhibition are the work of historian Jacques Mathieu, professor emeritus at Université Laval.
