  • We visited only the distant part on a separate island (with hydroelectric power plant). Because our French of moderately secondary school level is, we asked when buying the tickets (CAD14) or the explanation-especially of the guides-also in English. That was it, we were told. So we buy a ticket and waiting for the boat, along with some French-speaking Canadians. All very friendly (and abundant) personnel. Excited, too. Once we arrived with boat and bus at the Central, bleaching the guides exclusively French. Just to follow, also because this is really different sounds than European French. Some hints which we gave some bilingual & group members about the fact that we have either understood, were not picked up. And the oral explain were numerous and extensive. Annoying. A beautiful location, especially for whom industrial heritage.

  • The visit of the city of energy is composed of 3 parts: 1) the science center, the Museum is interesting, multimedia representation is quite entertaining (a little tricky because the techniques have evolved) 2) tower is spectacular, the view of the surroundings. (3) the exploration of historic district, visit the power stations is interesting: tools, panels, gateway, then old control room. Paper or supraconductivites for l aluminium. To avoid too much walking between the sectors: a bus and a boat

  • Exceptional views of the city of Shawinigan and the cataracts of the high of the tower. Really interesting visit on the production of electricity besides the opportunity to move within the water supply.
