JE, TU… ÎLE – WHERE INSULARITY TAKES ON ITS FULL MEANING
Who has never dreamed of living on an island? The calm, the beauty, the mystery… But over and beyond its idyllic side, insularity also means a certain degree of isolation for inhabitants and visitors, leading to a different way of life than on the mainland. The maritime and insular dimension of Île d’Orléans has shaped many aspects of its history and its inhabitants’ lives.
The Je, tu… île exhibit and its digital guide will initiate you to the secrets of the shipyard and bring you anecdotes directly from the witnesses of the past. You’ll also have a chance to visit an authentic 19th-century rowboat shop featuring a collection of period tools. A great time, guaranteed!
