Every February, Canadians are invited to participate in Black History Month… we invite you to honour our local legacy

DR. SAINT-FIRMIN MONESTIME

Every February, Canadians are invited to participate in Black History Month festivities and events that honour the legacy of Black Canadians, past and present.

The 2020 theme for Black History Month is: “Canadians of African Descent: Going forward, guided by the past.” This was inspired by the theme of the United Nations’ International Decade for People of African Descent (2015-2024).

The Mattawa Museum is honoured to feature a permanent exhibit supported by the Monestime family.

Music Maker Exhibit Unveiled October 5th at Mattawa Museum!

Victor Groulx didn’t just play music, he created it by making exquisite violins and violas. Muriel Groulx, Victor’s wife, generously donated one of each to the Mattawa Museum.  Family, friends, musicians, visitors, celebrated the man and his music on October 5th at the Mattawa Museum.

From good old down home fiddling, to classical music, Victor’s hand made violins and violas make beautiful music. Musical guests Shorty Sauve, Sandra Glabb, Nancy White, and Tomas Milczarek entertained all attendees with the sound of music.

Join us for our newest exhibit…

Coming Saturday, October 5th

Unveiling at 1 pm


The Music Maker

Victor Groulx didn’t just play music, he created it by making exquisite Violins and Violas. Muriel Groulx has generously donated one of each to our Community Museum.  Please join us as we celebrate with her, the man and his music.

In an early interview, Victor was asked “What’s the difference between a violin and a fiddle”?  He said, “You carry a violin in a case, you carry your fiddle in a sac”.


Come see our Music Maker Exhibit, Saturday, October 5th at 1 pm at the Museum.

There will be music in the house!
