Discover the great adventure of pulp and paper in Quebec through the lives of lumberjacks, log drivers and papermakers! At this old industrial site repurposed into a museum, visitors can explore a unique underground reservoir, learn about how paper is made and admire the magnificent view from the lookout.

The Boréalis museum is a choice family destination. Guides adapt to children by enhancing their visit with games and interactive components, all the while making the tour interesting for parents!

"Drave et dédrave - ramener l’équilibre", new free temporary exhibit

Log-driving is part of the identity of Quebec. What is left of that time? Old dams, bridges, chopping blocks; traces that have sometimes devastated the ecosystem. At the La Mauricie National Park, a vast operation of removing logs from the lake is ongoing to restore nature’s true place. Starting September 25, discover the little-known work of log removers in this family exhibit that explores the fascinating world of ecological restoration. An exhibit produced by Culture Trois-Rivières and Parks Canada.
