Musée Louis-Hémonis the oldest museum institution in the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean region. The museum was founded in 1938 by Montreal company Les amis de Maria Chapdelaine whose mandate was to honour the memory of author Louis Hémon and his landmark book, Maria Chapdelaine. Musée Louis-Hémon offers a tour of the house in which the writer stayed during his visit to the area at the beginning of the 20th century. Most importantly, visit the Maria Chapdelaine exhibit, introducing you to the truths and lies about the author and his work. Get the real story about this work, Louis Hémon’s unusual life, and that of his so-called muse, Maria-Éva Bouchard.
