Musée Marius-Barbeau: An out-of-the-ordinary museum that you’ll discover with your own two hands!
Experience life as a Beauceron and discover why we call them ‘’black shins’’! Try your hand at learning a little art and try to reproduce a work from the temporary exhibit Le voyage formel... from the artist Pierre Laliberté!
My 3 personal favourites at Musée Marius Barbeau de St-Joseph- de-Beauce :
- Discovering the origins of the Beaucerons and of their family names
- Understanding Beauceron architecture by playing with models
- Creating your own artwork with inspiration from the temporary exhibit Le voyage formel
The guided tour will show you a side of the Beaucerons that you’ve never seen before! These hardworking people have adapted their way of life relative to where they live.
Why do some homes have the same façade in both the front and the back? What’s a sugar mould? What’s the difference between a tale and a legend? How do Beaucerons view politics? You’ll discover all this and more during your visit.
Following your visit, continue along the Circuit de la Gorgendière in the village of St-Joseph- de-Beauce , which will introduce you to homes with some typically Beauceron features! As a proud people, the Beaucerons liked their homes to be display pieces, which can be seen in their architecture and surroundings.
Another thing that will attract visitors' curiosity at Musée Marius-Barbeau is the ceramic from Céramique de Beauce, which was constantly adapting to the trends of the day. If you want to start a collection, this is the perfect place to get more information!
For a completely unique and original experience, you’re invited to pull out your talent and try to reproduce one of the paintings of the temporary exhibit Le voyage formel by the artist Pierre Laliberté. This activity, which includes learning a few basic artistic concepts, will leave you with a whole new image of the art world, guaranteed!
Are you ready to put your talent to the test with your own two hands?
