Pointe-du-Buisson, the Quebec museum of archaeology, recounts the 5,00-year history of the site.  A pioneer in public archaeology, Pointe-du-Buisson is a beacon for research, teaching and outreach. The results of more than half a century of digs shed light on the history of the many different Indigenous and European groups who broke their journeys here.
