Museums & Galleries

The history of the Musée de géologie René-Bureau can be traced to the early 19th Century, when the 400-odd specimens by mineralogist, René Just Haüy, was found in the archives at Séminaire de Québec. From 1852 onwards, professors from Université Laval contributed towards expanding the collection, which increased to boast around 15,000 specimens by the 1960s. In 1962 when the Pavillon Adrien-Pouliot was established, the museum found a new home at the Université Laval. The museum houses over 40,000 specimens of minerals, fossils and rocks from around the globe. Guided tours of the museum are provided; call ahead for further information.
