OUR MISSION, OUR VISION, OUR VALUES

Before anything else, it's appropriate to introduce who we are and what drives us. The Musée de la Photographie Desjardins is first and foremost a passionate team that will successfully pass that passion on to you. And that's what truly matters.

We want you to know that the museum is as much our home as it is yours, and that, together, we can live a unique experience at each visit.

The Museum of Photography is a public space that gathers, restores, documents and exposes an impressive collection of cameras, pictures and objects related to photography. We guarantee you the most amazing discoveries.

We are also a place of research, teaching and sharing dedicated to the artistic and cultural radiance of photography and history. Yes, we know: it sounds too good to be true when said like that. But it's true, what can we do!

Based in Drummondville, we are the place of reference in the photography world. We surpass the expectations with the help of our distinctive, evolutive and accessible services in a unique experience. Here, you have to read between the lines: what are you waiting for to come meet us?

The Desjardins Museum of Photography members and team are all driven by the same passion that characterize them. They all share values of respect, ethics, integrity and rigorousness in reaching the Museum's objectives.
