Vieille école Schoolhouse

Musée la vieille école

This is where the celebrated Québec poet and singer-songwriter Gilles Vigneault got his first taste of the classroom.

Now converted into a museum, this old schoolhouse houses an exhibit on Vigneault, who sang and wrote about his region and some of the colourful people who inhabited it.

A tour of the schoolhouse will introduce you to people who actually existed, and through Vigneault’s songs, you will gain a better understanding of how they lived. Songs about fishing, hunting and trapping, relations between aboriginals and non-aboriginals, secrets, dancing and music, and departures... You’ll feel the spirit of those who shaped the life and history of Natashquan.
