The Ursuline nuns have been educating young ladies here for over 200 years. This is a small museum dedicated to it's history. Well laid out and interesting, it is woth an hour of your time.
We were particularly impressed by the breadth of the education offered even back at the end of the 19th century - english, french, maths, languages, physics, chemistry, etc. Even typing, stenography and telegraphy in the 1890s!
A much more liberal education than I had expected (rightly or wrongly!) from a cloistered religious order.
