The Musee de Charlevoix has an extensive exhibit of historical and contemporary Charlevoix folk art. There was also a very interesting exhibition on Charlevoix women. You will need between 1 and 2 hours to enjoy both shows -- I wish I had had a full...More

The feminist exhibit was interesting but mainly anecdotal. We found the permanent exhibit a bit lacking. The rooftop terrace was enjoyable, but was hardly worth the 8$ admission

Very well done exhibits in a lovely location. Takes about 1.5 hours to see all the exhibits. Good way to get a handle on the local history and geography, including the background on the huge meteorite that struck the region 450 million years ago.

Very interesting collection of folk art and artifacts from the area. We particularly enjoyed the folk art, which had great explanations, not just of the individual piece, but of the history surrounding the work. Well worth the morning.

The displays change often. Many are of international interest (paintings, Power Corp collection), whereas other tell the local history. A good selection of books on local history, cuisine and lore are available in the bookstore.
