Description

In a few words

As the place where the events of the historical novel “Les anciens Canadiens” by Philippe Aubert de Gaspé and “Mémoires” took place, the museum invites visitors to experience an immersion in “immaterial heritage.” Four exhibits and a collection of first person stories are sure to bring back memories and also keep them alive. You can visit the museum alone or with family, and are welcome to share your own recollections and knowledge to future generations. At the site, you can see the remains of the foundations of de Gaspé's second manor house. Enjoy the picnic areas, a promontory, a bakehouse built circa 1764, and a root cellar located mid-way between the museum and access to the St. Lawrence shores.

Visit duration : 2.00 h

For Real!
