Quebec has an incredibly rich history of battles between the French and English and the locals. The 30 minute video is vey educational and describes how Quebec came to be. One of the interesting things we learned in Quebec is that all of the pictures and statues of Champlain are not of his face, because no one knew what he... More

this consists of a short video/animation projection on the battles that established quebec citys history. We joined a large group of schoolchildren in this small theatre as avaialbility is limited. There is a large display of the battlegrounds at the front of the theatre and the actions/consequences of each of the major battles is explained. I'd recommend doing this early... More

The main part of this small museum is a diorama of colonial Quebec which "comes to life" during a video presentation of the three main attacks on the city in its early history. Great for getting a the lay of the land and the historical background. Perfect if you have an interest in military history

Having picked up a brochure of Musee du Fort, at the Citadel in Quebec City, we showed up with questions. The two staffers were personable and specific about the availability of an English presentation in the company of a student group. Despite my hesitation, the staffers were welcoming and encouraged our group of three adults to attend that presentation. We're... More

Coming in for a half-hour-long light-and-sound presentation in this not-exactly-museum is an excellent summary introduction to the history of Quebec from military perspective. Young children will like the lighted diorama, older children and adults alike will appreciate the history lesson.

So we went to this little museum with a school group. It is an awesome presentation showcasing the history of Quebec City and basically the formation of Canada. I'd recommend going to this museum BEFORE you go to the Plains of Abraham. The history that you learn here will help you out when you go to the Plaines. Nice little... More

This small museum is a great way to learn about the city and understand the history of Quebec. It is less of a museum and more of a short show with a diorama of the city that explains the founding of the city, the various attacks/wars on the city, etc. It was very informative. The English tours run on the... More

This presentation was like a "Coles Notes" to the history of Quebec City. It was a good idea to visit at the beginning of our trip and also gave our kids some geographical context for what they had been learning in history. It was only about half an hour long.

We took the kids to the museum on the recommendation of the tourist office around the corner. Well, they loved it and so did we. The interactive map and the nice lady that gave us a round of Q&A after the show were great. I would strongly recommend anyone to go there, to understand the fascinating background of this beautiful... More
