...which I do, you will enjoy this museum with a guided tour in English. Our guide was knowledgable and loved the subject which meant he brought it alive for us. Skip the creepy 3d "historic multimedia" show in English presented by a disinterested museum employee who speaks unintelligible English -- with so many wonderful things to do in Quebec this... 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

I love the way they had it all presented inside, such a lovely historic house with minimal detail. but a warm inviting place nontheless.

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...

We enjoyed the upstairs exhibits at the Chevalier House; that was a nice display of furniture and fashion of times gone by. However, we went there for the Augmented Reality show depicting the development of the city of Quebec. It was not quite what we imagined. The "augmented reality" is simply a guide holding up a tray with an item... More

This stone house is beautiful. Most of the rooms are furnished with period furniture from the 1600s, 1700s and 1800s. It certainly worth spending half an hour to walk through the rooms. It is convenient to the other sites such as the Place Royale and the Petit Champlain.

This gives the visitor a real feel of early life in Quebec City with accurate early furnishings. It was built in 1752, with older parts originating from the late 1600's. Highly recommend.

Loved the set up of all the rooms through the periods. Exceptionally well done...this is also where I purchased the $5 walking tour map and headphones.
