Musée maritime

About

Anchored between river and mountain, located in the old Saint-Joseph-de-la-Rive shipyard, the museum recounts Charlevoix’s rich maritime history. Find out all about the Saint Lawrence schooners through a brand new exhibit. Explore this exceptional site alongside the river, with numerous stopovers at thematic buildings. Board the Félicia, a 1923 tug boat, and the schooners, Jean-Yvan, Saint-André and Marie Clarisse.

Activities

  • The Museum’s permanent exhibit relates the maritime history of the Charlevoix region. Visitors are immersed in the fascinating world of the old wooden schooners and the many activities surrounding them. A self-guided path includes rest stations and multiple attractions, including the indoor exhibit, sawmill, store, workshop, hoist, and slipway, as well tours of the schooners and the tugboat Félicia. It’s a unique opportunity to explore the history of maritime navigation and learn about the important role schooners played in Quebec’s economic development.

  • The trail begins at the Papeterie Saint-Gilles, near the Musée maritime de Charlevoix, and gets to a marine forest located in Saint-Joseph-de-la-Rive.
