Travel back in time at Musee du Fort. Located right next to the famous Château Frontenac, the museum offers an audiovisual lesson of the history of Quebec.

After that, take an interactive quiz to test how much you learned.

  • A must see attraction. Stay for the interactive presentation.
  • Excellent animated diarama to focus your tour of Québec City. For all ages. An essential concise military history of the early part of the last 400 years.
  • 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.
  • Very interesting movie explains so much
