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

We were very impressed by this museum. We did not expect the really Hi-Tech effects of the military history of Quebec. It was a first rate sight and sound experience and we learned a lot. Don't pass this one by!

Interesting museum which is worth a casual visit if you are in the area. Probably a must if you are very interested in military history. Quebec has had a long & troubled past.
