The mission of the Musée de la Mer is to safeguard the heritage of the Îles de la Madeleine, in the heart of the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

This translates into ACTIONS such as research, conservation, enhancement, dissemination and education, especially under the maritime and insular footprint that conditions the life of the Madelinots.

This footprint develops itself through history, anthropology, sociology, art, ethnography, archeology and the natural history on which it depends.


The Museum of the Sea aims to develop and share four areas of expertise: museology / conservation, education, marketing and museum management, to become the "Resource Museum" of the Magdalen Islands.

Through its efforts, the organization wishes to strengthen its reputation and its influence for the benefit of the Îles de la Madeleine maritime community.
