Museum of the Hospitallers of Hotel Dieu of Montreal
Inaugurated in 1992, the Museum of the Hospitallers of Saint Joseph of Montreal, scaling the course of history, opens on a magnificent 17th century oak stair case from France. It is a reminder of the first Hospitallers who arrived in Canada in 1659. The permanent exhibit recalls the history which goes back to Jerome Le Royer, who chose Paul de Chomedey and Jeanne Mance to establish and evangelize a colony and construct a Hotel Dieu on the Island of Montreal. The museum also displays the expansion of the works of the Hospitallers in Canada and the United States, the epidemics which struck Montreal in the 19th century, the evolution of health care and the practice of medicine, the role of the physicians and the School of Nursing at Hotel Dieu.
