Give to the Museum

The maritime industry, governments, large corporations and numerous private donors including those who have bequeathed several hectares of land at the museum have supported the desire of men of the sea, including that of Captain Yvan Desgagnés, to build a place of memory. In 36 years, the Musée maritime de Charlevoix has sailed from an exhibition held at arm's length by a handful of volunteers to a museum that now offers a 360 ° tour from the forest to the river.

Dedicated to the protection and interpretation of schooners and cabotage on the St. Lawrence River, the museum is today the tourist and cultural heart of the village of Les Éboulements / Saint-Joseph-de-la-Rive. It is a place of culture with five exhibitions, a heritage space with four boats to visit, a lively park, a landscaped trail, welcoming premises, a time-out, an open book on the men and women who have lived the great river.

The Museum is seeking your support to continue its efforts:

  • To protect its three schooners who due to age, weather, etc. are in need of constant repairs.
  • To perpetuate the schooners and grounds for future generations.
  • To double annually the reception of school groups who come to study at the museum;
  • To remake the rails of the old system of hauling boats (1946) still operational.

With your help, the museum will be able to maintain its focus, well as that of the village and Charlevoix, and make sure to always tell the story of schooners and cabotage.
