  • This museum looks indeed a bit like a little fortress, wonderful architecture. Inside you'll find a miniature battle field around historical Quebec, and there will be a light and sound show of a half ...  more »
  • Don't we take the museum itself, but we eat a snack with a beautiful view to the Chateau Frontenac. The menu on the wall of the Museum helps a lot.

  • Where else will you find a narrated wide screen slide show with a 3D model set up to play in sync with the show. Yes, it is not ultra high tech not modern but I can guarantee you will not see anything...  more »

  • Great little museum!! This is the perfect place to start your trip to Quebec. It is a simple diorama of the city and surrounding area, in a sit down theater. They narrate the history of the city with clever lighting and special effects. Truly Unique exhibit well worth admission price. It is a great way to get a feel for the city landscape and historical context. Very kid friendly. The museum is upstairs, there is an unrelated coffee shop downstairs which share a common entrance. Often the line out the door is for seating to the restaurant, not the museum. So don't forget to Ask
  • Simply brilliant way to tell a historical story about Quebec and the surrounding area through models, lighting and great visuals. Great value for money as under tens were free.
  • Amazing diorama with modern effects and narration. Great way to learn about the history of the city and it's sieges. Well worth a visit while in Quebec.
  • I thought that this was the best way to start our visit to Quebec. This is a basement sized diorama integrated with sound and lights. It provides an excellent visualization of the terrain , the location of the city and the tactics used in the battle. I would see this museum first to get a good idea of the 1759 battles that were fought here. Also, it makes a great resting spot after you have climbed the escarpment to the Chateau Frontiac square. Shame on you who take the funicular!
  • Very good museum woow but never been there
