To discover, see and do...
In Lac-Saint-Jean, water is omnipresent. Discover how this resource powered the development of the region through the many activities offered by L’Odyssée des Bâtisseurs. From June to September, inside a former water tower, live the AQUAVOLT – L’aventure de l’eau en 360° experience, a gripping multisensory movie that takes you through time, places, and seasons. See Alma City from the scenic lookout; its waterways and hydropower facilities sparked industrial development in the region. Stroll down the walking trails, adorned with vestiges and hebertism games for children, and where you will meet colourful characters! All year long, see the exhibitions presented in a heritage building and discover our new permanent exhibition Au-delà de l’eau. Temporary exhibitions and workshops for the entire family are also offered. Guided tours according to availability and interpretative signs (bilingual).
