The model and description of the battles of Quebec City were interesting. There's not much else here, so it was expensive.More

Good overview of the history of the wars in Quebec. There is a model that lights up and really helps you understand how the battles players out. Really enjoyed the film and learning about the history

We are avid history buffs and looked forward to experiencing the story of Quebec City's early days with a supporting AV experience. I guess we had in mind the Cyclorama style presented in Atlanta, Georgia for the Civil War's battle for Atlanta. This was not...More

This museum offers a paid experience to a history of the battle of the Plaines of Abraham, using a diorama in French and English. It features a sound and light show and lots of information about Quebec history. Guides were good, and the museum is...More

This was one of our first stops during our 5-day Quebec visit, and it certainly paid off. It gives an excellent "bite sized" version of Quebec's military history, including both successful and failed attempts at capture. The use of a fairly impressive diorama and light/smoke...More

This is not a true museum in the sense of having rooms with items of lasting value, procured to be studied and displayed. Instead, it focuses on a sound-and-light presentation about the history of Quebec, highlighting the French occupation and the British attacks. As history...More

Located above the "Chic Shack" burger place is this small "museum" which is mainly a large Diorama of the Quebec area. The projections, lighting, sound and special effects (smoke and gunfire from tiny ships and cannons) are really quite good. A very interesting and entertaining...More

This is a fascinating large-scale sound-and-light diorama production, very worthwhile. It presents Canadian colonial history parallel with that of the US, and gives a very concise story of early Quebec. The show itself is unlike anything I had seen, and I can't think of a...More
