    It will take about 1.5 -2 hours to tour and walk. The views and grounds are stunning. A great place to bring lunch in summer or spring time and eat outside.

    So many nice things to see and great exhibits on various topics related to history and to more modern subjects. I wish I could have stayed longer.

    This place has delicious hand crafted chocolate like cappuccino, Montezuma (a blend of spices), and raspberry. They also make a wonderful dark hot chocolate. I enjoyed the small but informative museum with interactive exhibits. The dress and bag made of chocolate was cool.

    Incredibly friendly and fun guide. Lovely to see an old house still standing in an area where all the homes are now businesses or private houses or have been replaced by a new apartment building. Small, interesting home, extremely well kept. Worth the ticket. Tours are given in French and English. The first one to buy a ticket picks the language. We were very lucky, since we don’t speak French, but we’re the only native English speaking people in the (English tour). Thank you to the other six people who were willing to do the tour in English. We did a few other tours, but this cozy little home with the kindest tour guide was my favorite.

    When we arrived we were taken through the history of Quebec city by a young man who obviously knows and loves history. This was so much more interesting than reading the material and much more informative. For the other sections, we read the material and looked at the items on display. Not all of it is available in English which is a bit frustrating. We were given cards with English for one room. I don't find reading as satisfying or informative as an oral recounting so I would have prefered being "guided" through the entire museum. :) The guide checked on us partway through to see if we had any questions which was helpful. I am glad that we went and we did learn a lot.

    Ask about the amulets!

    I’m a history teacher and teach Canada’s involvement in WWI and WWII so I love visiting naval museums. This one was good. The object were interesting and was great to see some German objects as well. Even found some object relating to my own Grandfather who served on the Prince Robert! My only critique is your map outside the museum. I believe you have an error. Please see attached photo.
    Otherwise this is a terrific little museum!

    Unique place because of its history but also because of they way it is built comprising two different styles - front of the house is English and back of the house is French (look at the style of windows/roof on the pictures attached).

    I came there accidentally August 7, 2020 (drove by) and happy that I did as the lady attending this museum (she is in the pictures) gave me (at no charge) so much history not only of this place but also of the whole area making a big positive difference in my whole Quebec City experience. She made Quebec City historic “live” for me. I believe this is the oldest house in that area and I felt privileged walking on its beautiful grounds. Very much recommend.

    There is no point in being harsh about a free experience and the idea of having a sound and light show visible from many places is a great one. However, I side with those who raise their eyebrows over this attraction.

    We watched from the upper walls of Old Town - great views, great sound. We arrived really early, thinking the place would fill up, but it didn't so we could have just arrived at the last minute.

    About 15 minutes into the program, my husband turned and whispered, "What on earth is this?" Others around us were murmuring similar things; most of us left before it was finished.

    My friend and I were visiting Quebec and are history buffs and naturally wanted to stop here. The video is well done recounting mainly the French and English conflicts of the 1700s and 1800s. The staff was very friendly and the exhibits about the history are also well done. It is a small place and not too extensive.
