Quick but informative show - great way to start a tour of Quebecois history

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... read more

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

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.

Within an hour you are able to learn about Quebec's history (30 mins for a video and light show and 30 mins to go through in detail the postings and information). 4.5 our of 5
