Mission and Merit

The Museum

The Museum aims at highlighting the rapport that has been established between the natural environment and human occupation. It wants to depict the many ties that unite the general population to the Saguenay Fjord region, in particular the La Baie and Bas-Saguenay districts.

Musée du Fjord’s mission is to preserve and celebrate the historical, natural, and artistic heritage of the Saguenay Fjord and Baie des Ha! Ha! territory. It also aims at promoting this heritage and raising public awareness about its importance.

Musée du Fjord pursues this mission through its permanent exhibitions, multimedia presentations, scientific space, temporary thematic exhibitions, touring exhibitions created by other institutions, and public programs.
