The sculptures outside are so original and fascinating. Inside, the art gallery has two floors. The shop has various objects (jewelry, clothes, books, things related to art). Every employe was very nice. We ate there and it was good and we saw the sea from...More

This site. right on the St. Lawrence seaway, is just a few kilometers from the end of Highway 20 east (at Mont Joli). Many people miss this beautiful town with its main art gallery (Marcel Gagnon). We typically stop here to eat at the restaurant...More

What a great little stop. Have fun taking tons of pictures outside but take a few minutes to look at the house and boat of the artist and to visit the gallery. Other artists also show their art. There a restaurant but we didn’t eat...More

Stopped by on the way back from Ste-Flavie from Jardins de Métis because... well we had to. The house with its gallery and restaurant stands out on the scenic coastal drive. The statues in the river are an engaging work of art. We decided to...More

If you are driving by, it is a great place to stop by and stretch your legs. There is a lot to see and explore at the gallery - even if you are not a fan of the arts. They offer accommodations for sleeping and...More

beautiful, creative, free, right on the highway, what else can you ask for? Besides the sculpture, the building itself has some very unique arts on the wall.

We like the gallery (free of charge) and the little souvenir shop. The outside of the building was also quite interesting. Didn't really know what to make of all the clay figures along the beach and in the water, though. But still a pretty interesting...More
