Born in 1990 following the shooting of two film productions (Robe Noire, 1990 and Shehaweh, 1992), the Nouvelle-France Site recreates the daily life of the colony of Quebec in the 17th century. Recently, the winter outdoor scenes of the documentary Le rêve de Champlain were filmed there. The site was finally opened to the general public in 1993. Since then, it counts every year several thousand visitors.
