“Great for overall historical information”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

The diorama was much better than I expected. It should be the first thing you do when visiting as it gives you an overview geographically and historically. Was good for all ages. The cost is minimal and there is a discount in one of the travel guide books free at the info place across the street from museum.

“Really well done!”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

We were greeted by a lovely young woman who showed us to the viewing room. This really interesting diorama is enhanced by some extremely well done audio / video and wonderful story tellers.

You get to know all the major players who took part in the Battle of the Plains of Abraham. It's more than just an annotation in a history book. The presentation takes you into the battle itself

Well worth the money - about $12 total for 2 of us I believe.

“Interesting”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

The history of the fighting over Quebec was well told using great visual effects. Just 25 minutes and well worth seeing. Right across from Chateau de Fontenac

“A pleasant surprise”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

I wasn't sure what to expect from a diorama, but the show was quite interesting and a good introduction to the history and geography of Quebec City. The young man who presented the show was very friendly and patiently answered everyone's questions. It is well worth a visit, and even the children in the audience seemed to enjoy it.

“Very interesting”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

We really enjoyed the diorama. It was very entertaining and gave a really good account of historical facts. Not a special effects show, but in it's simplicity made history come to life. Staff were very welcoming and friendly.
