Stopped by to have a look. Interesting art work, but without a tour of the place, hard to really understand the artistic process. Not a "must see" in my opinion.

This museum/store is an excellent stop on a day trip from Quebec. The legacy of the orginal artisan has been presereved by his children who know operate this store. We have visited twice and both times bought beautiful items, the first of which is over 13 years old and looks like the day we bought it. Definately worth a short visit.

This is a lovely workshop, shop, museum and family hang-out all rolled into one. It was part of our Quebec City and Countryside tour and we feared it was going to be one of these hard-sell places where you feel bad if you don't buy something, but not in the slightest.

It's all family-run and the late owner's wife and daughters were all there. Another lady showed us round and demonstrated how the copper items are made and we had a wander round all the exhibits on show. Absolutely fascinating!

I did indeed decide to buy something as a memento of this visit - a lovely hand-made on the premises copper bangle which only cost £24 which I felt was very reasonable.

We thoroughly enjoyed this part of our trip and would recommend it to other visitors to Quecec.

Interesting short stop into Quebec. Information about the copper mining industry here over the years. And on-site gift shop for local hand made copper jewelry and artwork.

The daughter of the artist gave us a tour and demonstration...very informative and personable. There is of course a shop and many items for purchase. But you don't feel pressured to buy.

We decided to take a one-day bus excursion. This beautiful atelier, museum and art shop was truly a delight. The family business, generations in the making, provided an introductory talk about the history of the atelier, and then explanations about some of the beautiful copper works of art in the museum. Now run by three generations of talented women, we found a true point of interest during our visit to Quebec.

This was an unexpected stop on my 1/2 day bus tour on Old Quebec Tours. The museum is awesome and the tour interesting. If you go to the nearby Ste Anne Basilica you can see the beautiful copper doors at the entrance to the basilica that Albert Gilles crafted. The jewelry for sale is beautiful. I only wish I had more time here but time is limited on a bus tour. I highly recommend a stop here if you are in the area.

This was an unexpected stop on one of our tours during our visit to Quebec. This small boutique and museum of Copper Art is amazing. This is an art that has been passed down for generations and the family members are your hosts during the tour. After showing our group how the copper is molded etched and formed into these beautiful pieces of art they allow free time for browsing. The prices are a bit high for some of the pieces but well worth the quality of the art. We enjoyed just looking at these beautiful pieces of art. Stop in you'll love what you see!

Visited as part of a bus tour to Montmorency Falls. Wasn't really expecting much but was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the copper art. Would definitely revisit!
