Despite the sign on the front door that says “open every day in the summer from 09:30 to 17:00,” I found the place locked, with no explanation on the door, at 15:50 on Thursday 30 August 2018. At about 16:45, I saw a young man...More

We went to visit the Maison Chevalier but it was closed! They were only opened from June 24th to September 5th... What a pity. We admired the outside, and went back to the Place Royale and the Quartier du Petit Champlain.

An interesting historical museum and free! Next to Place Royal so easy to visit after wandering round looking at the outsides of the buildings. Able to view an interior.

This museum showcases how families lived in the 18th and 19th century. It also provides some history of the house itself. It took about 30 minutes to go through, was well set-up and it completely free.

The Maison Chevalier gives you another perspective at a later time period, in the settlement of Quebec City. If you are a history buff, then it is well worth the visit to see what life was like in Quebec City for the middle class in...More

The first floor of this old house-turned-hotel is underwhelming, but the second floor has several rooms showing Quebec house interiors throughout the centuries, and it's very cool. Plus, it's free and quick to visit.
