First of all - access for those with walking difficulties is extremely difficult. Then you have to wait for a presentation in English (or French), when the presentation came it was good - not too simple or too technical. It’s an amazing model.

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

This was one of our first stops during our 5-day Quebec visit, and it certainly paid off. It gives an excellent "bite sized" version of Quebec's military history, including both successful and failed attempts at capture. The use of a fairly impressive diorama and light/smoke...More
