  • A must for learning about the heart of the economic engine of the old Trois-Rivières. Great Cross of the St-Maurice River and the St. Lawrence River. Wastewater treatment plant refurbishment with the interactive history of runners of wood. A basement to discover absolutely!

  • Great experience interactive and this, both for the young and the less young! Very affordable cost. Great place to enjoy a drink and enjoy good food. Way back in time to the life of workers in the pulp and paper sector. Bravo!

  • Not much to do if you dont have kids ;) The self guided tour coupled with equipment based audio tracks is a nice experience. The fact that it's a decade old factory amazed me. The underground cell is a good but short lived experience. The best place to be here is their terrace. See picture. Overall a nice place for a one time visit.
  • Good simple museum about how paper was made and the installations around trois-rivières. The guided visit is good, the paper making activity was fun but quite brief. The rallye where you find writing on the wall with special flash lights is cool, especially with kids. Once you're done all of this you can go back in the exhibit and properly look at it, taking the time to listen to everything, which includes a bunch of testimonies from people who worked in the trade. Very nice, not too expensive and relatively quick.
  • A beautiful building, artfully converted into a very interesting museum. A great place to learn a lot about paper but not just.
  • I would give 6 stars if I could. A journey through history I will never forget. Amazing !
  • It is a good place for someone who is really fond of knowing evolution of paper industry in canada and the process of how paper is made.
