Make sure to visit the exhibit at École Michaud, an old country schoolhouse converted into an interpretation centre about island life.

This fascinating exhibit bears witness to the past and present of the people of the island. You’ll learn about some of the activities that were central to the islanders lives, such as harvesting eelgrass, which vanished in the 1930s; fishing with weirs; and transportation by boat between the island and the mainland.

The exhibit also includes a display about how fishing weirs were made and another about the archaeological discoveries made on the island some years ago.
