Owner description: A museum on the history of this small coastal city, with exhibits on its famous residents, such as Jacques Cartier.
Reviewed November 17, 2011

I went on a mid-November afternoon and during my hour looking round saw no other visitors. The receptionist was friendly and helpful, the ticket about £5.
The exhibits are arranged on about five floors and include an external watch tower level near the roof obeying good views. I have basic French but sometimes struggled with the explanatory notes and labels. The rooms are a bit dark, not unpleasant and maybe to protect exhibits but cast an unnecessary gloomy ambience. There was plenty of space, everything was in good condition, well presented and I could follow the sequences especially through the eighteenth century and the stuff about the 'discovery' of Canada. Overall the museum kept me interested and I left knowing and understanding more. Not sure it would maintain the interest of many children which is a pity.
