  • We only had time for the submarine, but enjoyed every moment in it. This may be a challenge for someone with back or mobility issues, but it is a submarine, after all! The walk through is horizontal, ...  more »
  • On the return of the Gaspé to Quebec, we were invited to go to these places to visit a submarine, but also be aware of a maritime disaster occurred only two years after that of the Titanic. This museum dedicated to the quick of Ireland"is simply great and you will understand penetrating in its movie theater that's not for nothing that it has been awarded. The wreck, which is based in the St. Lawrence has been classified to protect breakups operated on its hull by divers to enter. The submarine, an interesting visit that immerses you in the heart of the life of a Submariner of the last century. The claustrophobic refrain! ;-) A stop to program if you can.

  • The submarine visit is totally worth the experience. Don't skip it if you find yourself in Rimouski.
  • Fantastic experience, well done with audio guide in your language of choice. A well crafted experience to get to know life in a submarine. Narrated in a very accessible way for adults and children.
  • When we went the sub was open . Was great. I will go back when the light house is repaired.
  • Any adventurous person must visit the submarine. The Empress museum is very nice too.
  • This was an experience not to miss! We took an overnight tour of this submarine. The tour consists of a guided tour of every part of the ship, and how life is on board a sub, you learn all the different stations,, and how to operate them, then they run through a scenario and some fun games. You watch a movie then its time to sleep on the cramped sleeping quarters. In the morning you are severed a continental breakfast, given your submariner's pin and leave the sub. Do not miss this fantastic experience.
