  • Intéressant. Mais un peu cour comme présentation. J'aurai voulu en savoir plus! Mais, la maquette est très bien. Je pouvais bien visualiser le Cap Diamant et la région de Beauport et la Chutes Montmor...  more »
  • I did enjoy this relatively simple diarama of the battle for Quebec City that we were all told about at school in Britain in the 1950s as it was such an important event in the history of the British E...  more »
  • This is a 30 minute video that runs every hour in English and every hour in French. They have a cool replica model that is used to tell the story of Quebec's battle history. Worth the 8.00 admission, ...  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
