If La Pulperie de Chicoutimi were only a standalone museum, it would be well worth your time. But the complex is so much more. Encircling the main building is a 74 acre urban park called Jardin des Vestiges. There is a network of interpretative trails to see the heritage buildings (dating from 1898 to 1923) as well as a hydroelectric dam on the Chicoutimi River. In the foreground is Mill #3. It was constructed on Electric Island in 1912 to augment the adjacent Moulin Saint-Joseph from 1898. Admission to the park is free but the museum requires a modest fee.
