Centre d’interprétation de la rivière Saint-Maurice

Do you like to travel back in time? Guide-animators will make you live the days of the draveurs on the majestic Saint-Maurice river. You will be able to admire a collection of scale boats created by a regional artist Mr. Arnold Fay.

This impressive collection expresses the aspect of navigation on the Saint-Maurice River and its tributaries, for more than 140 years. From corded barges to steamboats, alligators and steel tugs, the history of this voyage between 1856 and 1996 marked the course of the Saint-Maurice River.

You will also learn that several boaters were able to tame this river during the International Classic of Canoes of the Mauricie. You, brave loggers, will have to follow the course of the Saint-Maurice river to draw ... information! Like the route of the river, the history of the Saint-Maurice River is long and winding. Each reading plate therefore presents a different aspect. Use the accompanying guide and answer questions related to the exposition.
