Welcome aboard! (high season)
Welcome aboard! (high season)Permanent exhibition - June to October
Come aboard and look at the Gaspésienne no 20, an authentic cod fishing boat, on the shore of the magnificent Gaspé Bay! A rare survivor of its generation, it has had a thorough make-over and now looks just like it did. Thanks to a community effort in the summer of 2016, the boat has been restored to its original colours and once again has all the gear it needs to go cod fishing.
Take the sea - Virtual reality
Have a seat and make yourself comfortable; put on your headset and your earphones and literally step back into the past… a 360-degree-surrounding experience!
It’s 1963 and you’re out on the water, far from land, in the company of two friendly Gaspé Peninsula fishermen: Thomas and Jos of Newport. With your movie camera, it’s your job to film the journey of a documentary film producer from Montréal who, although he’s seasick, wants to learn all about fishing techniques, the history of the Robins and especially, life aboard one of those legendary ships known as the Gaspésiennes. Beware of storms!
The film, Gaspésienne no 20, is an immersive journey and a unique experience featuring innovative technology!
