  • The Museum is very interesting, rich and varied. I visited on the same day the 2 expo "the library at night" and nanoparticles. The first is fantastic even though we'd rather that virtual tours extend to each library. The second, I made it on tour and it was exciting! Then I visited the 2 parties on first nations and the history of Quebec. Here again, it is rich and well presented. Do to better understand the particularities of this nation.

  • Especially if you find yourselves in a temporary exhibition not to miss it. A museum open to all with various activities not only for children. The performance of reading at night is something magical. Nice and interesting indeed. There are modern, and other artifacts of the history of Quebec.

  • The Museum presents exhibitions at the same time. The rooms are large and airy. A cafeteria to take a coffee break to continue the tour rested feet. The locker room can leave his coat for not having warm during the visit. For parking, go to the port... when the renovations will be completed in the meantime better take the bus

  • Amazing museum, well worth the $. So many nice exhibits, very artistic and awe inspiring yet educational. Could spend the entire day here easily
  • Actually really really like it. Not what you would expect. A different museum. 25x la revolte! was a great exhibition of revolution large and small around the world. Inuit part was good. Nanotechnology exhibit even relates to butterfly colors! Nicely done.
  • Always interesting and very beautiful place. You don't know what to do? This is a safe choice for anyone.
  • A great museum to fill an afternoon in Quebec City. Located in Old Quebec it has lovely surroundings with a cafe that had a lovely looking menu (we'd already eaten so gave it a miss). The exhibits were all very interesting, creative and well displayed and they have some interactive children friendly areas that sound good.
  • Seemd rather summery. Good introductory info but lacks detailed/deep explanation.
