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.
