Your second stop (after the Tourist Information Centre) but this should be your first museum. It gives you an easy to understand overview of how Quebec started and the beginnings of why it is so unique.
This might not be for everyone, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. The light show is an interesting unique way to tell the history of Quebec. I don't think I'll forget what I learned that day. The staff are super friendly and there are shows all day in English and French. It only takes around 40 mins and it's pretty cheap, so if you're looking for something to do or wan't to take the kids to an interesting educational experience, I would recommend this.
A big diorama explaining the military history of the city. Only 30 minutes, but a very unique show that is a must see! The guides Sarah and Jeremy were very friendly, thanks for helping us find a good place to eat!!
While we chose to view the historical diorama show on account of the rain, we would recommend it highly. It provides an excellent context for the spirit of the city and Quebec in general. Do note the panels along the staircase which provide the history of the city in both English and French and can be accessed without paying for the show. Staff were pleasant and provided bilingual service with ease.
Some of the technology is starting to feel a bit dated, but the show is still very good, very informative, and fairly memorable. Probably the most effective way to learn the history of the city and province on a trip to Quebec city. Good value for families, although very small children might find some of the stimulated gunfire frightening. Excellent customer service.
