Even before you do the Citadelle or Old Town, do this small theatre stop. Its an excellent diorama - a static display with sections highlighted during the audio presentation. It has French and English presentations. I don't know how the French version is done, but by the end of our 20-30 minute show in English, I felt like jumping up... More

Our guide on a free walking tour had recommended this place to us. If you visit the Musee de Civilization, you can get a 20% discount here. It was a small museum like others have said but since I am a history teacher, it was a multimedia presentation on Quebec's history and military battles. It was fascinating to see that... More

This is not really a museum. It is a 25 minute multimedia show highlighting the history of early Quebec. It is well done and was certainly informative. Reasonably priced as well.

This museum is really a 30 min show about the military history of Quebec, using a model, sounds, lights, and a video screen. The topic was interesting, and they did a good job for what they were trying to convey, even if it was a little cheesy. It is not expensive, $8 CAD for adults. They had shows in French... More

This isn't really a museum; it's a show. You wait in the gift shop until the theater opens and then find a seat overlooking a diorama of Old Quebec. After the theater goes dark, lights shine down on the section of the diorama featured in the narrator's story. I literally fell asleep. The show lasts 30 minutes and rotates between... More

We enjoyed this museum and its show telling the story of the various battles for Quebec. It was nice to get an overview of the region and understand the history of the walled city and its people. It's not expensive and takes about 30 minutes.

This small museum in the centre of Quebec city is a great way to learn about the battle on the Plains of Abraham between the French and the English in 1759. They have a live commentator as well as a large diorama and a video which demonstrates how the battle occurred. We had read quite a bit about it before... More

If you do not know Canadian history this is a great way to start your tour of the city. A nice interactive display using the model depicting locations and details of battles. Personally, thought the price was a bit much for a family but enjoyed the experience nonetheless.

This is right in front of all the tour buses and I thought it would be a tacky little museum, BUT it is fantastic. It has a wonderful model of the original settlement of Quebec and shows with lights and other affects the battles that determined the fate of Quebec. I understood how the battle on the Plains of Abraham... More
