A museum that brings together

The shipyard, founded in 1946, was a social economic project. 20 people from the village, men and women, each invested a thousand dollars for the creation of the building site. To this day, their generosity and foresight continues to pay generous educational dividends to our community and visitors!

Heir to this sense of community, the museum organizes festive, free and recurring events.

10 am to 4:30 pm

Great celebration of the river and the village, the Sea Festival is on the schedule of many families: music, inflatable games, BBQ dinner, make-up, construction and competition of cardboard boats, small boats race on the river Boudreault...

September 30 - Bottles at the sea

10 am to 1 pm

On the occasion of the Journées de la culture, the museum invites all writers, short story writers, word smugglers, chroniclers, Sunday poets, letter writers, daubers and other sculptors to come and write.

The day will begin with the meeting of the famous author Kim Thúy for whom the river has a special meaning. Born in Saigon in 1968, she left Vietnam with the boat people at the age of ten, arrived by the river and settled with her family in Granby. His first book, Ru, published in 2009, wis a huge success. Best-seller in Quebec and in France, Ru is translated into more than twenty-five languages. À toi, Vi and mãn are also works of the author.

Followed by a time to write, this literary meeting ends with the workshop, Bottles at the sea.
