More than a museum, La Pulperie de Chicoutimi is a vast interactive cultural and tourism centre dedicated to preserving and promoting the Saguenay - Lac-Saint-Jean's patrimony and to the furthering of arts and history. La Pulperie is an exceptional historical site located in the midst of the city, surrounded by a huge park, and lodged within the old mill of the Compagnie de pulpe de Chicoutimi. It features the history of the Compagnie de pulpe de Chicoutimi and highlights the significant part this company played in the development of the city and the region at the beginning of the last century.
