Fascinating to see the extent of the original industry of the Saguenay. Huge industrial buildings and equipment and a real sense of the wealth that was generated here.

A lot of history about the mill-if you like that stuff it`s your place but not for us. We pretty much went just for 1 of the few expositions (Marionnettes de la télévision). That was fun to see! The rest was not interesting for kids....More

We went there for the Easter hunt- the children had so much fun. Very well thought of and I lost my husband to reading the very interesting history of the papermill.

If the cruise port is on the Saguenay river near route 175, i'm guessing it would take a good 45 minute walk. Your best option is to verify this with Google Maps using the addresses of both locations. Click the Walking... More
