Exquisite craftsmanship blends with the romance of bygone days in this sumptuous exhibition of 18 horse-drawn sleighs and carriages. Handcrafted between 1770 and 1950, some of these elegant conveyances once transported Catholic cardinals, Montréal millionaires and governors general. Today, the artistry of the carriage makers lives on in the handsome lines and fine details of these lovingly-restored antiques. On loan from Québec’s Musées de la civilisation Paul Bienvenu Carriage Collection, these vehicles belong to a nationally recognized heritage collection.
An exhibition developed by the Musées de la civilisation, Québec City, and presented by the Canadian Museum of History, Gatineau.
