I went there with a small group of friends and really enjoyed the 30 minutes presentation/reaneactment of the battle of the Plains of Abraham. The show is only $8 and totally worth it.

My friend and I wanted to visit some local museums, and this was on my list because it advertised a "30 minute light and sound show", or something along those lines. I expected something like a mild Pink Floyd-esque show from that description, but it...More

It’s a small museum, but we didn’t regret we got in, because they have a nice and éducative projection with light and sound effects. It’s visual and therefore stays in everybody’s memory. We learned ourselves and kids really enjoyed it, besides, kids were free and...More

This place has a diorama, sound and light show which was very good, made history come alive. It traced the battles and made them more understandable

The highlight of this museum is a large scale replica of Quebec City during the 1700s and some military figurines representing major battles for the city. While I find the sound and light show to be unique and interesting, I think the models are starting...More

As old as this site is getting, I always enjoy the depiction of historical events and appreciate the addition of dynamic lighting to the storytelling. This is a must-see if you want to know what happened in Quebec's history at the Fall of New France.

It’s a small museum that has an light and audio show of the history of Quebec City. The show is done in French or English. The show uses a 3D model of Quebec City. It was informative.

Our boys age 14, 12, and 9 are not usually so keen on museums and listening to history but this was so short and visual that it kept their interest and it left all of us with a good understanding of Quebec City's history.

Tentative itinerary for mid August - comments welcome (7 Replies)
Hi Everyone, Sorry for the length of this post, but I’ve always found TripAdvisor to be a wonderful resource. I’ve been studying the TripAdvisor forum for the last few days and have come up with a tentative itinerary, and I’d appreciate your comments/advice. Background: My wife and I were in Quebec 20 years ago. This time we are coming in two weeks as two adults with 2 teenagers (boy and girl). We’re staying at the Frontenac and will NOT have a car. Because we’re using miles, two of us...More

Your plans with respect to Quebec City are not overly ambitious as the Old City is quite compact, and very easy to navigate and walk. As for getting there, I am a big fan of the train, Via Rail, very convenient and comfortable, and the station will be close to your hotel. The only drawback, either by bus or train, is that there really isn't any scenery in between the 2 cities to speak ot. Otherwise, opt for comfort and the train. JDP
Quebec Experience or Musee du Fort with kids? (0 Replies)
Which would be of more interest to my boys aged 9 and 12: Quebec Experience or Musee du Fort? From the descriptions I've read, they seem similar. Thanks!
