Our permanent exhibitions
Gaspésie...a grand journey!
This exhibition takes visitors on a real “tour of the Gaspésie”! From west to east, from the sea to the mountains, from the beginning to present day, exploring the area and introducing visitors to the men and women that made the Gaspésie what it is today.
La Gaspésienne no 20 - Virtual reality
La Gaspésienne no 20 is an authentic, 60-foot-long cod fishing boat, installed on the grounds of the Musée de la Gaspésie. The fishing boat has been restored with the help of the local community. Visitors can climb aboard and meet an authentic cod fisherman with our virtual reality (360-degree) experience. An experience like no other!
