Born to Sail

“Born to Sail” tells the story of the families of Charlevoix schooner sailors in a photographic and animated video immersion experience, along with synchronized images projected on three walls. A must-see!

From Mariners to Storytellers

They were captains, cooks, mechanics, ship owners or entrepreneurs in the era of schooners; saltwater runs through their veins. They lived to the rhythm of the tides, learned their trade from their forebears, and now share their stories with us from the privacy of their homes.

An exceptional story to start your visit to schooner country!

Step aboard the Jean-Yvan!

This ship, the centrepiece of our collection, is a fine example of the ingenuity of Charlevoix’s shipwrights.

Let’s explore her from the hold to the wheelhouse!
