Learn the history of the art form and how the museum's founder, Albert Louis Gilles, championed the industry. Discover the fascinating history of how Pope Pius XII executed the silver chalice offered to the archdiocese of Montreal. Hear stories of how he decorated more than thirty places of worship in Quebec, New Brunswick, and Ontario, as well as in the United States and Jamaica.  See the workshop in action on this guided tour, as artists create pieces of art and techniques are brought to light.
