In a few words

2018 marks the Musée Maritime du Québec (MMQ) 50th anniversary! We're offering a summer MMQ pass so you can come as often as you like all summer long. Were you born in 1968, too? We'll let you in free! Come aboard our two historic boats, visit the boats featured in the Ships That Sailed Nowhere exhibition, come on into the museum to explore its five exhibitions including the brand new Era of Longboats a in the Boathouse, and learn out more with ICI EXPLORA guided visits, including on our impressive collection of model boats. In July and August, join us for Saturday family outings and Sunday coffee hour discussions. Don't forget to bring a picnic to enjoy along the banks of the St. Lawrence. Visit our Le Cabestan boutique for original Quebec creations and MMQ souvenirs. A memorable day for families, groups and Quebec maritime history lovers!
