The inner courtyard and Museum's rooftop terraces

In the summer, the Grand Hall opens onto an intimate and picturesque courtyard, surrounded by glass walls and a stone wall belonging to the Estèbe House, built in 1751. Cocktails, anyone?

The Museum rooftop is a unique outdoor space that will surprise and delight your guests. With that magnificent view of the St. Lawrence River, your soirée on the Museum rooftop is sure to be a big success!


Some items of furniture are provided with the rental of the Grand Hall. You can add items according to your needs and the style you wish to give to the event, but don't hesitate to ask our advice.

The handling of all furniture the Museum provides is included in the price.


A top-notch technical team is available for lighting, sound and projection.

The Museum team is also there to assist you with preparations and a technician is on duty throughout your event.

And best of all? The equipment and services available on the site all come with the hall rental (up to a certain number of hours). Ask us for a customized proposal to get all the details.
