  • A very good, brief, run through the military history of Quebec in diorama form. Well explained and entertaining. Wouldn't suit toddlers but older children would enjoy it 
  • There's little there but a movie show to see. I'd pass it up if I were you.There are better places to spend money. 
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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.
  • Very good!
