The Arche Museum

Discover this cultural place, which houses both the Archives and the Museum of the Territorial Collectivity of Saint-Pierre and Miquelon.

A must-see museum

In a quality scenography, immerse yourself in the great history and the small stories of the archipelago… including that of the guillotine, preserved here in memory of the past. Numerous events are offered throughout the year (exhibitions, animations, workshops, shows, conferences, etc.): something to fascinate young and old alike!

A historic inauguration

The Arche was inaugurated in September 1999 by the President of the Republic, Mr. Jacques CHIRAC, during his visit to the territory.

It was in the Museum space that the President gave his speech to the population. The small wink for the Arch was this one: “Bravo to the General Council, initiator of the project at the origin of this very beautiful set of the Museum-Archives where we are and that you wanted as the witness of the rich historical past of these islands (…)”.
