Village historique de Val-Jalbert, Chambord

4.4
#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. Village historique de Val-Jalbert is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Chambord Edition.

    This site is wonderful. Temporal immersion is successful by the good conservation of places and the game of several facilitators within the village. In addition, the lovers of nature will find their account admiring two falls and along hiking trails in the forest. The visit takes about 3½ hours. It is a "must" If you are in the area.

    R.servez a room or a House and live the days of our forefathers who colonized the region. Walks in the forest, performances, ideas, a festive atmosphere assured visits! You want to live differently, book camping and discover this beautiful region. Of more, even in winter, the site in surprising and allows the discovery of pure white trails! We were really excited. And above all, to book an evening at the superb restaurant in the mill; guaranteed taste experience.
