If you truly want to understand the history and geography of Quebec City before 1800, the half-hour diorama show (available in French or English) is a must. Although it concentrates on the six military campaigns for the city (the famous battle on the Plains of...More

Interesting museum which is worth a casual visit if you are in the area. Probably a must if you are very interested in military history. Quebec has had a long & troubled past.

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.
