This was a great way to start a trip to gain an appreciation of Quebec City. Was nice to be able to put into reference the places we were seeing, from lower town to upper town, the walls and more. The dioramas were neat.

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.
