Pointe-du-Buisson, Musée québécois d'archéologie

Museum experiences

The permanent exhibition pays tribute to all the amateur archaeologists who have found remarkable evidence of past occupants of the site over the years.  Then it’s your turn to join the archaeologists on the Pointe-à-Jonathan dig site and see what you can find. You’ll be helping to gather knowledge about the lifestyles of the First Peoples who once lived around here. It’s an authentic, unforgettable experience for young and old alike!

Some other irresistible attractions: a chance to handle some artifacts and reproductions along with an archaeologist.  

Every year, the museum devotes a temporary exhibition to a theme related to its mission. It also displays the work of local and other artists. You’ll be impressed!

There’s a wide range of educational and cultural activities, too. While archaeology is the central focus at Pointe-du-Buisson, lots of emphasis is also placed on sharing Aboriginal culture, know-how and daily lifestyles. Check out the website!

A Growing Collection
Pointe-du-Buisson is also a laboratory-reserve with 4,000 objects and more than 2 million artifacts unearthed on the site, as well as a documentation centre. And then there are its ethnological and iconographic collections, and an exceptional collection of local fossils!
