If you're a history buff ,particularly interested in local battles, this might be worth it. Otherwise, it's a snore.

It was raining so this was a perfect way to pass 45 minutes. Nice history with a heavy pinch of quebecois pride. It’s a sound and might show explaining the history of Quebec City and the battles between the French and English over the centuries.

There is a scale model of the city of Quebec and the surrounding area. There is a light and sound show detailing the military attacks and history. It was informative but a little overpriced.
