Museums: Explore the art of repoussé (metal embossing) at this small museum and gallery. Its founder, Albert Gilles, was a Parisian-born artist who established quite a reputation for himself as an artist of great skill and insight, supplying works to churches, businesses and even Walt Disney. Most of the pieces on display here are copper, a metal native to Quebec, along with what is generally considered his crowning work: the story of Jesus Christ told over the course of 50 exquisitely detailed silver panels. On request for a small fee, the staff will teach you the basics of repoussé and you can take your own completed work of art home. Shop and tea room on-site as well.
