THE GIFT SHOP AND TEA ROOM
Established in a very modern decor, the Museum’s gift shop, with an area of roughly 70 m2, gives visitors an opportunity to purchase original, even unique, objects that are connected with history and rural life: local products, including Amerindian products, old-fashioned toys for children, as well as a selection of books specializing in history, gastronomy and horticulture.
At the Museum gift shop, you will find ideal gifts for all occasions. The products have been carefully selected to highlight Québec creators and artisans. Pewter-ware by the Atelier Bernard Chaudron, utilitarian pottery by Dominique Didier, fabulous Fabibijou jewellery , ceramic items by Céline Fafard and arrow-weave belts by France Hervieux: art for the eyes and the heart.

The gift shop has a tea room that looks out onto an outdoor terrace designed for means and sampling the herbal teas produced with herbs from the garden, all accompanied by a seasonal cake. The terrace is decorated with a public work of art created by Michel Goulet.
Outside, a real bread oven, built in the traditional style, is used to produce delicious bread, which can be eaten on site or in the Refectory or purchased from the gift shop.
