GESPEG MICMAC INTERPRETATION SITE
Petit Futé's opinion on GESPEG MICMAC INTERPRETATION SITE
Come live the Mi'gmaq experience in Gaspé! Located on a promontory on the north shore of Gaspé Bay, backed by the mountain and a stone's throw from the forest, the Micmac Interpretation Site in Gespeg will help you discover this nation from yesterday to today, its occupation of the Gaspé territory, its history and its culture. Explore the Mi'gmaq universe thanks to the interpretation center and its native craft store, as well as the faithful reconstruction of a traditional village and its summer camp as found in the 17th century. Rain or shine, live a unique experience on Mi'gmaq land in the presence of guides-interpreters and craftsmen members of the nation. You will be able to appreciate their ancestral know-how as well as their contribution to the Gaspé community. Guided tours of the interpretation site are offered in French and English upon reservation and last a maximum of two hours (you will find schedules and rates on the website). Please note that the site is always closed between 12:00 and 1:00 pm. For group reservations, please contact them directly to organize your visit on site.
An authentic Mi'gmaq site to discover through its guided tour, its permanent thematic exhibition and its boutique offering a range of authentic and quality handicrafts (to bring back beautiful souvenirs), without forgetting its delicious bannock (traditional native bread). You're sure to fall in love!
