The Musée de la Gaspésie is a private not-for-profit institution established by the Société historique de la Gaspésie with the assistance of the Ministère de la Culture et des Communications de Québec. It was inaugurated on June 17, 1977.
The Gaspe Peninsula (Gaspesie), is located on the eastern tip of the province of Quebec, north of New Brunswick. It is mostly a coastal region being surrounded by the St. Lawrence estuary and gulf as well as by the Bay of Chaleur.
Parc national de la Gaspésie is a veritable sea of mountains located in the heart of the Gaspé Peninsula. Its varied climates and unusual geomorphology attract a diversity of plant and animal species that are unique in Québec. The park has 25 peaks over 1,000 metres high.
