“A great overview of the local military history”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

I'm so glad we attended this performance. It would be interesting to any fan of military history as it explored both the history of Quebec's French and English early inhabitants, and the tactical advantages and disadvantages of the unique location and geography. Available in both French and English. Highly recommended.

“Cool display with comfortable chairs”
Reviewed 28 December 2013 via mobile

Tried this after reading the reviews here. Liked the Quebec-in-miniature display. I would suggest that you take the time to read about the history of the display. This started as a labor of love for one man, and has blended the use of new technology with the retro skill of miniature modeling well. And it is a nice break from walking around the city.

“Charming little museum”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

While I wouldn't call this a museum per say, we loved our visit! The half an hour sound and light show was very informative and we learned a lot about the history of Quebec. While very simple, it was very effective and engaging.

“Good Overview of Quebec's Early Years”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

The multimedia show is short and very engaging and informative about Quebec's founding and battles in the 1700&1800's. It gave context to many of the names peppering Quebec's sites and historical figures as well as some American and British ones.

“It is a show, not a look at artifacts.”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

Sometime it is good to learn about the place you are visiting, and this museum provides that. There are not artifacts to look at, rather, it is a well done diorama showing the convulsions that Quebec went through in it early history. The British conquered, the Americans failed to. It is about 30 minutes long, but worth it.
