Tourisme Charlevoix

Musée maritime de Charlevoix

About

Under full sails at the boatyard of Saint-Joseph-de-la-Rive (1946), the Musée tells about the wooden schooners and maritime cabotage on the Saint-Lawrence during a 360° visit from the forest to the river. The vast site includes a permanent exhibition, quay, sawmill, and four boats in dry docks including the Saint-André and the Marie Clarisse, two schooners classified as cultural properties.

New in 2018
• Have fun at the Parc des Navigateurs, an immense 20-acre playground with obstacle course, vegetal maze, arboretum, recreation area, sculptures, flower meadow and buildings where four new exciting exhibitions on steering, cartography, miniature boats and seafarers’ wives and children, take place. Stroll the sea forest 4-km trail in all seasons, a mountain hike featuring a unique view of the river and Isle-aux-Coudres
• Relax while admiring the river from ... the new covered terrace, numerous lookouts or, if you prefer, with your feet in the sand at the beach.
