History of Fort Saint-Jean Museum

Creation of the Fort Saint-Jean Museum
1965 - 2005

The museum was created in 1965, when the artefacts and documents collection recounting Fort Saint-Jean area’s military past was moved from the library to the old guard house built in the 19th century by the Royal Engineers.

Moving to the former protestant chapel
2006 - april 2012

Since there was not enough space in the old guard house to adequately display the collection and receive visitors, the former protestant chapel was converted into a museum in 2006 and the collection was moved over there.  The official opening took place on March 29th, 2006, when LGen(ret.) and Senator Roméo A. Dallaire cut the ribbon.
