Municipality:
The Site historique maritime of Pointe-au-Père, in the lower St-Lawrence, lets you visit a submarine! Enter the Onondaga (90m) and take the audio guided visit that plunges you into the everyday life of about sixty crew men. You can even spend the night! The Empress of Ireland museum invites you to rediscover the history of this steamship from its construction in 1908 to its terrible sinking in 1914, through an exhibit featuring dynamic museography. A must-see: the multisensorial show that will plunge you into the atmosphere of this tragic night. At Hangar 14, you can meet the inhabitants of the wreck in a fanciful and zany new giant puppet show (in French only). The Pointe-au-Père lighthouse, the 2nd highest in Canada, has played a central role in the history of navigation on the St-Lawrence. Climb the tower and enjoy a fantastic view.
