  •  Musée de la Mer

    On the Magdalen Islands, people often use the expression “aux Îles, c’est pas pareil” or “on the Islands, it’s different”. Visiting the Musée de la Mer certainly shows why!



    I especially liked the exhibition Vivre aux Îles - Vivre les Îles, a fascinating journey through the history of the Islands’ inhabitants!

  •  Site historique maritime de la Pointe-au-Père

    A shipwreck is both tragic and fascinating. At the Site historique maritime de la Pointe-au-Père, I learned all about the tragedy of the Empress of Ireland. Did you know it was the worst shipwreck in Canadian history? The Pointe-au-Père lighthouse station is also very interesting. But the high point of my visit was boarding the Onondaga submarine. I even spent the night there!

    The Gaspésie region played a key role in Québec’s colonization. Stopping in at this museum enabled me to discover the rich history of this peninsula and its inhabitants.
