Saguenay Fjord is the reason so many people visit Saguenay annually. See the fjord's soaring rocky and pine tree-lined cliffs on either a guided sea kayak tour or a local cruise. If you want to stay on dry land, the next best thing is learning more about the fjord's landscape and history through Musee du Fjord's exhibitions. The museum is also home to an aquarium, where you can handle starfish and sea cucumbers in the touch pool.
La Pulperie de Chicoutimi Regional Museum is located in an old mill and surrounded by a large park. It houses over 26,000 objects. Its permanent exhibitions include displays on the Canadian painter, Arthur Villeneuve and the Chicoutimi Pulp Company. The latter features multimedia and interactive displays on the company that shaped Saguenay. During the summer, the museum also hosts theatrical and comedy performances, and free Music Monday concerts.
