Museum of French Emigration to Canada

Patrimoine culturel,


For almost 4 centuries, Tourouvre and in general Le Perche, have very close links with Canada.
The contemporary and interactive scenography of this museum allows the visitors to embark for New France. This former French colony covered an area from the mouth of the Saint-Laurent (Quebec) to the Mississippi Delta (Louisiana). 400 years ago, the Percherons were among the first to go settle in these unknown lands, to clear forests to grow crops, build houses, in one word: to found a new country, Canada.
