20 000 Leagues Over Land and Sea - Exploring Six Centuries of Cartography
Organisation: Stewart Museum
The Stewart Museum will present the exhibition '20 000 Leagues Over Land and Sea - Exploring Six Centuries of Cartography'. Discover some hundred maps from the Stewart Museum’s collection, the largest, most consistent and comprehensive collection of ancient cartography and cosmography conserved by a private museum in Quebec. On display are world maps, continental maps, maps of countries, sea charts, polar maps, celestial maps and city maps. A selection of navigational, astronomical and surveying instruments as well as globes of the earth and the heavens—all from the Stewart Museum’s
collection—will complement the exhibition. More than six centuries of mapmaking will be presented, with special emphasis on the Age of Discovery, from the 15th to the 18th centuries.
This is an outstanding opportunity to discover the little-known yet fascinating world of ancient mapmaking.Venue: Stewart Museum, 20 chemin du Tour-de-l’Isle, Parc Jean-Drapeau, MontrealLanguage: English and French Contact: Josée Massicotte
