The official opening of the new Pierre Lassonde pavilion, the fourth building of the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec (MNBAQ) complex, was on Friday June 24, 2016. A symbolic date to inaugurate a world-class pavilion which celebrates Québec art and artists.

Designed by Eugène-Étienne Taché, the Parliament Building is a monument to the glory of the women and men who marked the history of Québec and French America.

Take the time to stroll through the gardens: Many species of trees, shrubs and plants representative of the wide variety of flora native to Québec can be observed when walking around the gardens surrounding the Parliament Building.

Maison de la littérature is housed in the former Wesley Temple, in the heart of Old Québec. The building underwent a stunning interior transformation and a modern, luminous extension was added, all courtesy of architectural firm Chevalier Morales Architectes. A core component of Bibliothèque de Québec, Maison de la littérature houses a public library and a permanent exhibition on Québec literature, writing carrels, a comic book workshop, a creation studio, a writer’s residence, a quiet lounge and a variety of events presented on its stage throughout the year. Open to all, Maison de la littérature is a place for writing, creating, meeting, and participating—bringing literature to life in a lively, warm, and inviting setting. It is a space for the spoken and written word and for the creation and dissemination of the literary arts.
