This was kind of a disappointing diorama of local history of battle of Quebec City. Seems dated for these days of high tech.

Want to know about the British attack in 1759 that defeated the French in 20 minutes and made Canada part of the British Commonwealth? When you see the fortifications around French Quebec, how could this have happened? The British fleet made it up river 8 miles past these fortifications. The British troops ascended the Plains of Abraham, and the battle... More

We loved the show! Interesting history, nicely made little figurines. Remember to keep your tickets for some discount in other museums.

Very interesting overview of the history of Quebec, cleverly put across in a clear and memorable way, in 30 minutes. A good use of 30 minutes, and reasonable value for money.

There are English or French shows offered to see a video presentation of the historical fighting in the area with miniatures and lights.

The museum consists primarily of a film which narrates the major battles to conquer the city over two centuries. The film is based on a marvelous diorama which depicts the rivers, city and islands, about 15 feet wide and 6 feet deep, set in front of you. As the film proceeds small lights trace the battles on the diorama. It... More

Thoroughly recommend the show - my wife is usually bored rigid by history stuff (which I adore) but she enjoyed the show and found it interesting and very informative. It gave her a solid grounding in the story of Quebec and brought the city to life for her

Our family of five joined in with a school group for this. There is a diaroma of the Quebec City area and then you watch a movie as the battle scenes are illuminated on the diaroma. There is light, smoke, and fire. Great way to learn Quebec City history during your visit. We loved it! Sit in the front row... More

This was a very cool, unique retelling of the events of 1759. I am a school teacher, and wish I lived closer because it would be PERFECT for my grade 7 history class. There is a diorama that has interesting effects (burning, smoke, lights, etc.) that play while the story is being told. This really brought the events to life... More

I learned so much about the history of Quebec from the movie at this museum. I loved how the movie incorporated the use of other media, including an awesome, giant 3D diorama of the city. It was a fun way to learn the history. We happened to be placed with a high school group and we got to experience the... More
