Before you read any further, you should know that the Museum of Civilization promises to wow your socks off, so set aside a considerable part of your day to be wowed. For starters, the exterior is a fine blend of old buildings with modern designs. Gracing the cityscape since 1988, the Musee de la Civilization has two stunning permanent exhibitions that should not be missed at any cost.
The “People of Quebec: Now and Then”, maps the history of the region and the people right from its fur trading days to the move for independence to the well-loved tourist spot it is known as today, this one display is enough to tell you everything you need to know about Quebec. The second exhibit is the “Encounter with the First Nations” that delves into the culture of the aboriginal people that inhabited these lands before the Europeans settled here.

Musee De La Civilisation Reviews & Ratings
Great Museum and extremely family friendly. Free coat check is always a plus when travelling with children and especially during the Winter months. I have bought our family memberships for the past two years and have not been disappointed with their expositions, yet. I recommend bringing a lunch for you and your gang, unless a $10 salad or sandwich is of interest to you. There are microwaves downstairs and you can heat up your lunch for the family without any hassles. I do recommend stopping by during the summer as their terrace is really quite enjoyable on a nice sunny day.
Visited the wonderful cat and dog exhibit here last weekend. Had lots of fun and learned a lot about both dogs and cats. The only reason this review is 4 stars and not 5 is because although most things were also in English and French, some were just in French. There were two videos that you could watch that only had a french option. This upset me as they seemed like very interesting topics that I would like to know more about. The pricing was pretty decent too. If you are under 25, I believe, it is only $10.
You are in a heritage home where you can learn to appreciate Canada's story. Amazing pieces from hundred of years ago. The short film facing Champlain was also a neat way to learn about history.
We liked it. Great place to spend a rainy day. You can buy tickets online to reduce your wait in the lines.
Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Though small in size the exhibits are informative, well designed, and give a good overview of the local history and culture.
