This online exhibition was developed with the support of the Virtual Exhibits Investment Program, Virtual Museum of Canada. The Virtual Museum of Canada is managed by the Canadian Museum of History, with the financial support of the Government of Canada.

This exhibition was produced by the Musée des Ursulines de Québec from an original idea developed by the Laboratory of Museology and Culture Engineering (LAMIC) from Laval University to perform 3D scanning of the inner chapel of the Ursulines Quebec Monastery in collaboration with Luc Couchesne, University of Montreal, as part of the research project Nouveaux terrains d’apparition and Luc Noppen, University of Quebec at Montreal, as part of the research project Forum canadien du patrimoine.

The Musée des Ursulines de Québec is supported by the Ministry of Culture and Communications of Quebec.
