Musées de la petite école rouge et des vétérans

This interactive workshop will engage you into a unique and fun experience based on the traditional skills of our past. Although the workshop uses a more modern technique for the fabrication of the product, Grammy Jean will take you through an interpretative presentation of how butter was made in days gone by. This workshop seeks to recognize the important role women played in the organization of the household, as well as to highlight the extensive labor endured by our ancestors for their ultimate survival. Each participant will leave the workshop with their very own butter, buttermilk biscuits and recipe card!

9 :00 AM - 12 :00 PM (every Monday morning)

By reservation ONLY (48 hours in advance) at (418) 937-4754

    Municipalité de Grosse-Île

    The Municipality of Grosse-Ile is a small Anglophone community reconstituted on January 1, 2006, situated on the Eastern sector of the Magdalen Islands. This island forms what is commonly known as the East End of the archipelago, and it is the best model of a natural conservation site on the Îles de la Madeleine. The East Point Wildlife Reserve connects the islands to one another. The anglophone inhabitants of Grosse-Île are primarly fischermen and fish plant workers. The salt mine, located at the entrance to the Grosse-ILe district, an impressively large installation, is unique in North America. Salt is mined from huge domes that form part of the geological base of the islands. Grosse Île Island is home to many bird watching sites.
