Village historique de Val-Jalbert, Chambord

4.5
#1 of 11 in Museums in Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean Region
Experience life as it was in the 1920s at Village historique de Val-Jalbert, an outdoor museum and former industrial village. See about 40 original-period abandoned buildings, thanks to the village's pulp mill closing down. Interact with the characters of the town dressed in traditional costume by entering into a typical family home, attending a school class, or talking with the mayor and mill workers. Step out onto the glass platform for unmatched views of the Ouiatchouan Falls, a towering waterfall with strong cascades crashing against the rock face.

  • Off season the village had to be closed thanks to groups, and especially to the exceptional weather in this season we were able to make the visit. What joy... it's great history of a village to discover without fault!
