“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2011

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.

“Soooo interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2011

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.

“Free interesting tour with period character”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2011

Not to be missed. Free tours provided incl in English with guide dressed in period costume. Our guide was excellent presenting the home and exhibition in a way that was memorable for children and adults. Very convenient location. If you haven't had breakfast yet or want coffee and pastry try the nearby Petite Cochin Dingue (gratefully recommended by Chavalier House staff.

A definite must-see if you are in Quebec! It has authentic furnishings of the period and very interesting information. Walking in is like a step back in time! Don't miss it.
