The Museum of Costume and Textile of Quebec, uniquely devoted to fashion, costume, and textile, welcomes the public from April 19 in its new location in one of the most beautiful buildings in the city on the waterfront of Old Montreal.
Since its foundation in Saint-Lambert in 1979, the Museum has developed dynamically, increasing its collection to almost 7,000 objects and becoming a reference in clothing and textile history and a laboratory on fashions, costumes and textiles as artistic expression.
