SS1 - Musées de la civilisation
Bemused!
An unusual tour
in an amazing
museum!
the estèbe house
the boat
From the entrance hall or the courtyard, you will notice an old
house that is part of the Museum – it’s the Estèbe House. It
was built in 1752, more than 250 years ago!
A boat in the Museum! It was found during the archeological
digs that took place before the Museum was built.
The house belonged to Guillaume
Estèbe, a merchant, who lived there
with his wife and their 14 children (that’s
right, 14!). The bags, barrels and crates
of objects sold by Estèbe were stored
in the cellar (where the Museum’s gift
shop is today) and the attic. ›

Find:
• The carriage entrance that looks
like a rounded tunnel, allowing
horses and carts to access the
house’s courtyard.
• The S-shaped metal parts: these are actually huge screws
that go through the floors and prevent the walls from
warping under the weight of the roof. These metal parts
are called “S-irons”, or “esses” in French – guess why!
GROUND FLOOR
This boat used to cross the river and transport passengers and
goods from large ships to the shore.
Do you see
the stone
wall just
behind the
boat? It’s a
wharf! Back then,
the St. Lawrence River
was much wider and came
as far as where you’re standing.

Walk quietly: take your time and see everything.
Keep an arm’s length between you
and the artifacts or decors. This way,
you get a better view of the whole
exhibition. Touching is STRICTLY
PROHIBITED except for those objects
presented in the discovery zone
downstairs.
Are you taking pictures? Be careful! DO NOT use flash
and look for warnings that some artefacts CANNOT be
photographed.
Speak quietly: shouting is forbidden.
If a security guard warns you, change your behavior
immediately.
In the exhibition rooms, it is not
permitted to eat or drink.
You can always ask questions
to the guides.
Respect other visitors: do not
disturb them.
“Nano” means really, really small. So small that
you need a special microscope to see anything
this size.
