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

We enjoyed this clever Diarama that through film and automation tells the story of Quebec City's history. This was extremely entertaining and informative and I think would be enjoyed by all ages. Program takes about 30 minutes and is well worth the price!!

This museum sounded hokey at first but it is well done. You are treated to half an hour in a small theater of a combination film and action panorama. I learned more about Quebec's history here than anywhere else and it is fascinating...

We liked everything about this. Its a well set up show and explains the history well. They alternate English and French presentations. We visited this at the suggestion of a friend who is a serious military history buff.

This was a very nice addition to our trip. The diorama was most interesting and we discovered much more than I knew from all the studies I did on the subject. The show is presented in French and English and well worth it. I had a great time and came away with more knowledge than I entered with.

Friends had recommended we stop in for the short (20-30mins) movie and diorama provided here. It is well worth the $8 admission fee. The show is available in both English and French, alternating every half hour. This is a great refresher history course for us canadians, and would be a great starting point for others to provide some context for... More
