The Collection Musée Laurier (Laurier Museum Collection) had its beginnings at the opening of the institution in May 1929. The Collection was first composed of artifacts having belonged to the Laurier couple. The fine arts category was grafted upon the institution in the 1930s, when Alfred Laliberté, the sculptor, gave one of his works to the museum. Since that time and throughout the years, thousands of works of fine arts, of all trends, have enriched the Collection Musée Laurier.
