$25/family - well worth it especially if the weather isn't that great. Quebec exhibit is very good. The Paris exhibit was okay. Very interesting for our family

Nice museum. Wondered if the kids will like it, but as soon as we walked on to the Game History exhibit, which has games from 1960s till now, depicting how game/entertainment industry changed over time, kids just got lost. We saw all other exhibits, and had to pull them away from these games to get them out of here. Nice spot to spend half a day with the family, if you are visiting quebec city.

We go here on every visit to Quebec and it is great and different every time. Our teenage kids loved the current Gaming exhibit where you can play pong, donkey kong, and many other games, and the Parisienne Life exhibit. In the past we have seen Roman relics and a wonderful Samurai exhibit. Everything is in both French and English so all can enjoy. Great for a very hot or rainy day to escape. In the winter it is even free on some days and they will check your heavy winter coats for a nice escape from the cold without having to haul your coat around.

Something for everyone with temporary exhibits to please all interests. We purchased the $23 ticket for a 3-museum package which is good for 2 weeks. We visited the 3 museums in 2 day's time. The Musée de la Civilization had the most exhibits and took the longest time. The video gaming exhibit was great and the interactive games were all working. The exhibit about Paris at the turn of the century was super. The museum on the Place Royale was much smaller and suitable for children who may not want 3 hours of viewing culture. And the 3rd museum in the package was near the basicilla and was definitely more for adults... lots of beautiful pieces of oil paintings collected by the priests over many years at the seminary. Of the three, the Musee de la Civilazation was the largest with several exhibits and a cafe. One could spend an entire day there but we saw what we wanted in about 3 hours.
