    Two amazing tours and guides. Separate tours of both the governor general residence and the citadel grounds and buildings. Both very informative and entertaining. Bravo Demitri and Jeremey!

    Loved it. Went for the Rembrandt engravings but preferred, to my great surprise, the temporary collection of Canadian art, and the permanent collection of contemporary art. Fabulous place.

    I attended a workshop with Olivia Wagner on the wizard's garden. Olivia was welcoming, informative and a joy to be around. We spent a wonderful morning together. I learned a lot about herbs and plants that I can use in infusions. Highly recommend her workshop!

    Beautiful chapel. General Montcalm body was originally here. Markers are still in chapel.

    Small but fascinating chapel.

    Hidden gem. World so unlike ours. One of dedication to others and to contemplation. A key pillar of Quebec society. Oh and free. A cafe appeared to offer quick means or snacks.

    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.

    Chevalier House (Maison Chevalier) is quite an interesting building. It's an example of the so-called French urban architecture. It belonged to a wealthy shipowner, Jean-Baptiste Chevalier. It is in fact three buildings which date from different periods, from the 1660s to the 1760s! The three buildings were made into one. Today it is a sort of museum but when we visited it was closed.

    The museum was incredibly hot the day we visited and quite honestly I couldn't wait to get out of it until I came across the exhibit of statues created from 3D photographic technology and then assembled by hand. The stories behind each of the vignettes were beautifully told and the tableaus were arresting. Two that especially moved me were one of a woman who worked in a munitions plant who had a portion of her hand blown off while the other hand held several cartridges and one of the first woman executed in Quebec who is represented behind bars while her children try to reach out to her. Life was tough and this exhibit really brings that to the forefront. The Plains of Abraham might be interesting to history buffs, but the battlefield isn't clearly marked and I found we kept ending up in locations where there was nothing to see.
