Site historique maritime de la Pointe-au-Père
|Location||Rimouski, Quebec, Canada|
The Site historique maritime de la Pointe-au-Père is a maritime museum located in Rimouski, Quebec, Canada, that displays 200 years of maritime history, and includes the only submarine open to the public in Canada, HMCS Onondaga (S73).
In 2008, the retired Canadian Forces Oberon-class submarine HMCS Onondaga (S73) was towed from Halifax to the museum, where it has become a museum ship[fr]. The exhibition of the museum ship also explains the lifestyle of submarine crew members, and includes an audioguided tour.
The 'Empress of Ireland Pavilion' displays artifacts from the wreckage of the ocean liner RMS Empress of Ireland, which was sunk offshore in 1914.
