Pointe-au-Père maritime historic site

Climb aboard the Onondaga, the fist submarine open to the public in Canada. Upon entering the vessel, you will discover the daily life of the sixty men who lived for months in this 90-meter submarine. The audio guided visit will immerse you in this awesome universe.

The Empress of Ireland museum tells the story of the ship from its construction in 1906 up to its shipwreck, which left 1012 victims in 1914. Discover the collection of objects gathered in the wreck, pictures and passenger accounts. A multimedia show will steep you in the atmosphere of that tragic night. To mark the 100th anniversary of the shipwreck in 2014, a new building was added to the site: Hangar 14. It contains an exhibition of life in Quebec in 1914 comparing this with today!

Visit the buildings of the lighthouse station and the Pointe-au-Père lighthouse. Erected in 1909, it is one of the highest in Canada.
