The Plains of Abraham Museum is a great first stop in exploring the battlefield site. The museum area is small but helpful and you can purchase a tour on Abraham's Bus tour of the battlefield. This was lots of fun and well worth the expense. The trip moves quickly, Abraham is full of humour and points out very specific sites... More

Beautiful green space in Battelfied Park, part of the Plains of Abraham. Breathtaking view of the river. Take the hop off, hop on tour that includes a stop at the Plains of Abraham so you will also understand the history behind it.

Such a nice walk around the park. There is such a view of the St. Lawrence River. It helps to get out of the city hub bub for just a little while and reflect on all that you have seen.

As part of our tour group, we went to the Plains of Abraham which was interesting. There were restrooms nearly & a small gift shop nearby. Definitely worth a visit - better with a guide.

The Plains of Abraham combine a large city park with history, giving visitors a chance to stretch their legs while learning about Quebec's past. We enjoyed strolling the grounds after the crowds of old Quebec. Our favorite part was the Joan of Arc Garden located in the Plains. This beautiful slightly sunken garden is an oasis of flowers and beauty.... More

It was a very large park, and had lots of fun, and learned lots of history. There is museum there, but it's too expensive for its size. It was a beautiful park though.

This is the site of the battle that made Canada what it is today. Great! It's literally adjoining the Citadel, one of the two ultimate sights to see in old Quebec. Great also. And it is a beautiful park in every sense of the word. Great a third time. But forgive me for being shallow or unappreciative, but that's all... More

The entire plains have been transformed into a garden. The garden themselves are extremely beautiful and well maintained. However, there was less historical information than expected. There is a small museum on site and a guided tour available. The tour provides the most information. Until the tour we had no idea where the main battle took place. There were no... More
