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

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.
