Pointe-du-Buisson National Historic Site of Canada is made up of several archaeological sites spread over a wooded plateau on a point of land along the Saint Lawrence River in Beauharnois. The museum permits visitors to enter the fascinating world of archeologists. From the Indigenous peoples of 5000 years ago to the Europeans of the 16th, 17th, 18th, and 19th century, as well as hosting Sunday meetings celebrating commercial fishing in the 20th century, Pointe-du-Buisson has known multitudes of occupants over the course of its impressive history.
