Of Ships and Men

The permanent exhibition Of Ships and Men tells the story of the shipyard built in 1946. You will learn about the men who built and sailed wooden schooners on the St. Lawrence, until there disappearance from the river landscape in the 1970's.

The marked path is dotted with rest areas to contemplate the river and includes multiple stops: the sawmill; the workshop; the winch and sleigh (still active), as well as visiting four boats. You will have the unique opportunity to experience the history of shipping and coastal navigation and the importance of schooners in the economic development of the province of Quebec.
