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.

  • This ancient village built to the early ' 900 has been transformed into albergo diffuso. The workers ' houses have been restored, the school run by the nuns, the General Store and the old factory now converted into a restaurant. There is a magnificent waterfall which generates electricity for the machinery. Today you can reach the top with a comfortable cable car or with about 400 steps!
