Willow Bunch Museum
Exhibits

The Willow Bunch Museum occupies 2 floors of the Convent.

The corridors and rooms on each floor are packed full of artifacts organized as described below, but this is by no means a comprehensive inventory of our museum.





First Floor
  • Room #1 - Giant Edouard Beaupré This room, dedicated to the memory of Edouard Beaupré and perhaps our most famous collection, contains a life size statue of the Giant, his original 9 foot long bed, many of his personal items (overcoat, shoes, baptismal record, etc.), and numerous photographs.

  • Room #2 - House and Home A large collection of artifacts dating back to the 1900's, a time before electricity.
