Permanent Exhibitions

Comprendre-Ressentir-Agir-Inspirer (Understand-Feel-Act-Inspire)

Located in the hôtel du Parlement and divided into four zones, this exhibition provides an overview of Parliament Hill and the people who contribute to democratic life in Québec.

The Comprendre zone contains a large transparent model showing aspects of the hôtel du Parlement in its physical environment. The interpretive panels on one side tell you about the designer of the building, Eugène-Étienne Taché, and, on the other side, the way the urban environment on Parliament Hill has changed over the years.

The Ressentir zone invites you to appreciate the talent of the generations of Québec artists who have contributed to the hôtel du Parlement's decor. In addition to the paintings, the artists created many different emblematic art forms with glass, wood, stone and bronze.

The main purpose of the Agir zone is to show the various ways you can participate in Québec's political and parliamentary life.

The Inspirer zone highlights the importance of artists' social and political engagement in all forms of civic life. Thanks to their original ways of looking at the world and their works, artists are unique witnesses to their time, and in some cases powerful inspirational forces for change.
