The museum has a miniature set of the Quebec area during its founding. The presentation, which lasts 30 minutes, is a thorough history lesson on the battles and politics of the founding of the area. Well worth visiting.

Right in plain sight is the Musee du Fort. Everyone sees it right in the middle of the upper town but how many actually go in? We've been visiting Quebec for years and never did until this time. They have a FANTASTIC animated diorama that...More

Some other reviewers have disparaged this museum, however as a history buff generally familiar with a couple of the sieges of Quebec, I learned much that was new.
