Owner description: The Citadelle, National Historic Site, is located on Cape Diamant. The star-shaped layout is characteristic of Vauban fortifications. Construction began in 1820 and ended in 1850. Its walls enclose 300 years of military history in Quebec City spanning the French, British and Canadian periods. The Citadelle is an active military garrison. Guided tours of the site and the Royal 22e Regiment Museum, open year-round. Ceremony and changing of the Guard in summer. Night tours in summer and fall season. 2014: A new permanent exhibition "Je me souviens" "Je me souviens" relates the 100-year-long epic of the Royal 22e Regiment, the Canadian Forces' sole French-language regular force infantry regiment. Find out about the lives of the French-speaking soldiers who have served in its ranks, from 1914 to the missions in Afghanistan. Audiences will enjoy an interactive experience exploring the built heritage of the fortress and the regiment's history through interviews, video archives, and interactive maps of battles. Special exhibition Fighting in Flanders – Gas. Mud. Memory. This exhibition uses wartime artifacts, art, personal stories, photographs, archival materials, audiovisual presentations and more to relate the harrowing experiences of Canadian troops who fought in some of the worst battles of the First World War. They fought through poison gas in the Second Battle of Ypres, and struggled through a sea of mud to take Passchendaele ridge. This enlightening, content-rich exhibition also highlights Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae’s iconic poem In Flanders Fields, and explores how Canadians and Belgians have continued to remember and commemorate the First World War over the past century. Fighting in Flanders – Gas. Mud. Memory. was developed by the Canadian War Museum in partnership with the Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917 in Belgium, and with the generous support of the E. W. Bickle Foundation. The exhibition is supported by National Presenting Sponsor VISITFLANDERS. The access to the exhibition is included in the general fee (Citadelle+museum).
