The public health crisis caused by COVID-19 is having a major impact on tourist activities. Because of this unprecedented situation, the Maison d'école du rang Cinq-Chicots has postponed its summer opening to the summer 2021. Thank you for your understanding!
This wooden school was built in 1903 and welcomed students until 1960. In 1988, it was turned into an interpretation centre on life in old rural Quebec schoolhouses (in 1950, there were more than 5 000 of them!).
Miss Hermine Faucher, the first "schoolmarm", invites you to step back in the past to visit her schoolroom, and her tiny and cold bedroom, to take a look at her teaching tools, etc.
In addition to its permanent collection, the schoolhouse hosts a new theme exhibit every tourist season.
