  • The exhibit on Quebec history is fascinating. Well told and nicely detailed. We balked on the Merde exhibit.

  • Great museum with interactive exhibits and a good variety of things to see. Timed entrance meant people were spread out. The signs show how many people are in the exhibition so you can decide to go in or wait.
  • We spent a few hours here on our trip to Quebec, and spent most of our time in the Pompeii exhibit. This exhibit was very very well done, super informative and the voice clips were entertaining, educational, and not monotone which was very important. They will supply you with headphones and USB adapters for your phone which is a very nice touch and we did not think to bring ours. Definitely worth a visit if you are into history.
