The history of New France is one of many changes. The French Colonies of Quebec introduced Catholic customs and traditions to the New World, ushering in centuries of social transformation.
As European settlement took root in New France, groups like the Jesuits and the Ursulines de Quebec introduced the Catholic church and its religious traditions. For much of the history of New France and the Province of Quebec, the church provided schools and hospitals, making the it one of the most important social institutions in the daily life of New France. Covering the clothing, religion, transportation, diet and economy of New France, this exhibit evokes life in the French colonies of New France and the Canadian province of Quebec.
