Reviewed 14 November 2017 via mobile

I love history and when I visit a new place, I usually take a tour. This Museum is quite unique in that it is a 3 dimensional map with a sound and light show thrown in. I’ve been several times with friends and always enjoy it. It puts the history of the British and French Wars in North America into perspective and explains how Quebec survived it all.

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

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 it. It's an interesting story but the presentation was a little drab and lacking sufficient modern age visual support. We probably were affected by the persistent hacking coughs of at least three people in the audience.
