Basically, it is not a museum. Rather, a place to watch a movie. It tells the national history about the battles between two armies, one from France, the other from England. The film takes round 30 minutes.

A great beginning if it is your first time in Quebec City. The overall presentation gives you the history of how the city came into being. We did this our first day.

A good explanation of how Quebec was founded and then fought over, but the presentation was a bit dated and not all of the buttons in the seats for the quiz afterwards worked. I did win a water bottle for getting all of the quiz...More

It was raining so this was a perfect way to pass 45 minutes. Nice history with a heavy pinch of quebecois pride. It’s a sound and might show explaining the history of Quebec City and the battles between the French and English over the centuries.
