Small, unassuming, and doesn't appear in a lot of guidebooks. We went to see the 30-minute light/diorama show on the advice of a friend, and didn't regret it! In 30 minutes, the history of Quebec City was told in dramatic fashion, and easy to follow...More

This little museum condensed hundreds of years of history into a 1/2 hour video/diorama concisely explaining the major battles and military history of Quebec City. This should be your first stop in Quebec City - it puts everything else into perspective.

Mainly a big diorama and 30 minute video on the founding of Quebec and Quebec City. Focus is on the various battles over the years starting in the 1600's to take or try and take Quebec City. Good, entertaining history lesson.

Very interesting and a very good starting place to begin your visit of Quebec. The museum is very small, but the diorama presentation will give you a very good idea of the history of Quebec and Canada too.
