  • We were lucky enough to have a guide just for us who was able to answer all our questions, very interesting on indigenous peoples and the legislation still in force today.

  • This nice small museum doesn't take much time but is worth the visit if you are interested in learning about Quebec's history.  more »
  • In the shade of the Château Frontenac, the Museum of civilization is a beautiful piece of architecture. Open to the world, this place is perfect to visit an exhibition on First Nations, attending a conference in the amphitheatre, explore the mysteries of libraries around the world, etc. You will be charmed!

  • Interesting and varied zones. Really interesting and lots of interactive ways for all ages to learn and have fun. Eleven and under are free.
  • Excellent VR libraries tour and exhibits. Café on site as well for a snack in between tours.
  • Amazing museum, well worth the $. So many nice exhibits, very artistic and awe inspiring yet educational. Could spend the entire day here easily
  • LOVED this museum, partially for their exhibits, mostly for their creative interactive presentation of their exhibits. I enjoyed the architecture, use of glass and light and concrete. It was a feast for the senses.
  • It was an interesting place. Large enough to allow you to spend several hours there enjoying the exhibits, but not so large you wouldn't see it all in one day.
