  • We were going for the exhibition on London, and what a disappointment. It is rather a meeting with local artists, which many people may not know. Luckily we hadn't paid, since it was a free day. It is also a day to avoid, because it is extremely noisy with the children and the crowd. The other exhibits are interesting, especially Sosies-2000 years later.

  • I visited a few times the Musée de la civilisation de Québec and I always had great experiences. Lately we visited this museum again as it had a temporary exhibition on the city of London. As we love this city we enjoyed our visit. That said there are several permanent exhibitions and it has for all tastes. Take the trouble to go around all the exhibits as it sometimes has surprising. I remember special from one of them on a collection of small sand flasks around the world. There are also several exhibits with objects that do not rejuvenate us. Have a nice visit. Ps. The Museum service is really friendly. All the staff wanted to help you at the checkout, the locker room, the shop, etc.
