  • Relive the beginnings of industrialization in Quebec including electricity. Multimedia is great! Climb to the top of the Tower, autumn is beautiful! Then embark aboard the boat and made an informative walk on the St-Maurice River. End the day by contemplating an outward show of high quality! For the whole family

  • We had excellent half a day in the city of Shawinigan energy - I will say even that it was one of the highlights of our trip to Quebec. We spent half a day in the city of energy or we visited two things: first the tower for views of the region then the hydroelectric plants (also the old as that is still in business). If you only have a half day I recommend this tour. First hospitality was fantastic and friendly. The towers were very well organized, clear explanations, and very detailed and educational panels. The exhibition in the former station was very well done, and the fascinating explanations of our guide. It was also a chance to see the plant still in operation: it is very impressive. From the top of the Tower there is a beautiful view of the region: it is really worth. I totally recommend this tour. Thanks to all the team of the city of energy.
