The permanent exhibition
Gaspésie... A grand journey!


The Musée de la Gaspésie presents Gaspésie... A grand journey! This permanent exhibition takes visitors on a stunning trip around the Gaspé. From west to east, from the sea to the mountains, from the past to the present, visitors explore the region and meet the men and women who shaped it. What a way to discover-or rediscover-the history of the vast, beautiful Gaspé peninsula!



Seasonal exhibition 
Hammock in the sails - Félix Leclerc’s sea
Until 19th of August 2015

Félix Leclerc, who paved the way for our poetsongwriters, loved the sea and particularly the Gaspé. He would come here to sing, of course, but also to “drop anchor” anonymously, to relax, walk along the beach, strike up a conversation on a wharf… This love of the sea and the Gaspé is apparent in many of his songs, tales and poetic stories. Birds, islands and ships wend their way through the poet’s work, symbolic of his search for love, hope and liberty. In 2014, to salute the one hundredth anniversary of Félix Leclerc’s birth, the Musée de la Gaspésie will remove the veil from a little-known side of this great Québec artist – his love of the sea, the scenery and the people of the sea.

A Museum Experience: Explore the St. Lawrence

This summer, the Société des musées québécois invites you to plot a course for the St. Lawrence River ... and the museums that celebrate it.

Ten museums next to the St. Lawrence offer activities for children and a way to spend some unforgettable moments on your own or with family or friends: interactive exhibitions, dives far beneath the waves (while remaining perfectly dry), boat excursions, a night in a submarine, whale skeletons, impressive fossils, a valley of shells, a chance to handle sea stars, landscape interpretation and more.

As the region's museum institution, the Musée de la Gaspésie is the perfect place to discover-or rediscover-the beautiful Gaspé peninsula.

The permanent exhibition entitled Gaspésie... A Grand journey! and the various seasonal exhibitions held at the museum revolve around the history, art, heritage and culture of the region's people.

The museum is also home to the Centre d'archives de la Gaspésie, regional archives that are open to the public for genealogical and other research.

In addition, the Musée also publishes Magazine Gaspésie, Québec's first historical magazine, which will charm you with its quality content and diverse subject matter.

Come discover the beautiful Gaspé peninsula!
