Métabetchouane History and Archaeology Center

Devoted to local history since the First Nations era, this interpretation centre also recreates the living conditions of a 19C fur-trading post and stages exhibitions devoted to archaeological finds in the region. The gunpowder magazine at the entrance marks the exact spot of the original fur trading post, set on the banks of the Métabetchouane River. Also the memorial honouring Father Jean Dequen.
