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.

I feel badly not giving this a better review. It does contain a lot of history, but the show itself doesn't seem to be updated since the 1960's. Pictures of toy soldiers with gun noises added, and puffs of smoke coming from the diorama. Young...More

Overall enjoyed the entire experience, from when you first enter and read all the short clips on the history of the area as you go up the stairs to the Diorama of the battles for Old Quebec.

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

My husband and I will be traveling to Quebec - Montreal, Quebec City and Tadoussac for a week during the first of June. I would really appreciate some suggestions and feedback on my plans for Quebec City. When we travel, we like to experience the quintessential tourist attractions and historical sites that the place has to offer. I would rather go and do and see while I am traveling and rest when I get back home. Sunday June 3rd Montreal to Quebec City Leave Montreal around lunch...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!
