Immerse yourself in the tumultuous struggles and passionate cultural revival of the Acadian people, descendants of the 17th-century, mostly French, colonists who settled in what is now Canada’s Maritime provinces.

Standing as a proud symbol of contemporary Acadie, visitors to the Monument-Lefebvre will, through the sweeping exhibit “Reflections of a Journey – The Odyssey of the Acadian People,” journey into the past and vibrant future of the Acadian people, alive in music and history.
