  • Admire the works created from 90+ years of know-how inside the Albert Gilles Copper Art Studio & Museum, then create your own copper art inside
  • Walk through countless displays showcasing the copper art pieces created by the Gilles family, and enjoy a repoussé technique demonstration
  • The boutique and museum are the ideal stop before visiting the Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré, where Albert Gilles crafted the famous copper doors

Copper art has been in the Gilles family for close to a century, and their tradition hasn't gone unnoticed! The Heritage Council of Quebec has even acknowledged their talent in copper crafting.

The passion stems from Albert Gilles – the genius behind the Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré's copper doors – and now the five women of his family bring the medium to life. During a visit to their boutique and museum, you'll have the chance to see their metal masterpieces. They've worked for clients like Pope Pius XII and Walt Disney, and many of their pieces have gone onto decorate churches across North America. Before you leave, you'll also get to create your own copper piece to bring home!
