Name of creator
In the spring of 1995 the Naval Museum of Quebec opened its doors. The establishment of the museum was closely linked to that of the Naval Complex at Point-à-Carcy, which houses the buildings of the Naval Reserve in the Old Port of Quebec. At the time of construction of the Canadian Forces Fleet School Quebec (CFFS Quebec), in the heart of the naval complex, officials of the Department of National Defence decided to take advantage of this opportunity to include space inside the premises for the first naval museum in Quebec. The Naval Museum of Quebec is dedicated to the preservation of Canadian naval heritage. Although it houses documents and artifacts from colonial times to the present, the museum particularly emphasizes the role of French Canadians in Canada"s naval history.
