Our smokehouse economuseum is an invitation to discover the art of smoking, which has been practised by three generations of the Arseneau family on this site. Part of our industrial heritage, smokehouses are the only traditional buildings still in use in the Îles de la Madeleine. Learn about the smokehouses on the Islands from yesterday to today, admire the breathtaking sight of thousands of fish suspended for smoking, and taste products smoked using authentic traditional methods. This 45-minute tour will take you right into the heart of the Fumoir d’Antan smokehouse!
Guided tours are offered from June 1 to September 15; you may visit the economuseum on your own in May, late September and October
