Donations only museum. Very small museum but very well decorated. Interesting pieces. Definitely worth stopping in. Staff very friendly and accommodating.

The French architecture of this 3-in-1 house is interesting but you have to have an interest in that to appreciate it. There's really not much to see inside. But it is free and you can warm up inside on your way up or down the hill.

My husband asked what else was there for 3 houses and I didn't know. It is great it is open and the cruise crowds were here to get out of the windy rain but it needs more to make it vital and interesting. Just a thought...

This was a beautifully displayed set of rooms with furniture from the era, and no entry fee. English as well as French captions.

Located in the Lower Town, this is a home furnished in the style of a middle class family. The building has had several incarnations in its life as many old buildings have. The furnishings are from the collection of the Musee de la Civilisation. We had an enthusiastic guide who willingly switched from French to English and back again. He... More

We chose not to take the tour and we were glad we didn't - there was not a whole lot to see (though perhaps we would have learned more from the tour). The part of the house which is open to visitors is beautifully furnished with historical pieces and helpful explanations about the time period. It was a nice change... More

We expected more from this attraction. Although the building is very attractive and appears large from outside the actual space inside seems restricted and you do not have access to the whole interior. There is a small cinema type presentation which was not in operation when we visited, maybe as we were the only two people in. The furnished room... More

Our guidebooks were two years old, so we were surprised when admission was $5 and not free. However, they had added a very interesting history of Quebec from 16 million years ago to the present.The show used some interesting computer technology such that the live presenter would hold a flat board under a camera, and the computer would detect it...
